You may have seen or heard of the Martin Jetpack before, but now you can actually buy one for personal use without the need for an FAA pilot’s license. With an 8000-foot ceiling, the unit is powered by “a 2.0-liter V-four two-stroke engine that drives twin carbon/kevlar rotors.” Video after the break.

With 600-pounds of thrust, Martin claims its Jetpack can accommodate pilots up to 280 pounds. The five gallons of fuel carried onboard are enough to get you 31.5 miles in any single direction.
