Jetpack Aviation’s Speeder is set to become the world’s first jet-powered, personal vertical takeoff / landing (VTOL) flying motorcycle and a prototype has successfully completed an early test. The production model will be able to hit a top speed upwards of 300 mph, with a maximum carrying capacity of 600-pounds, all the while flying at 15,000-feet above ground. In other words, it can travel from Los Angeles to San Diego in a mere 20-minutes. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Around 70 percent of its lift is generated by the aerodynamic forces around the wing, rather than the vertical thrust component from the engines. This configuration lets it go from flight times of 20 minutes to nearly an hour, with the goal being to make it modular. The production model may look very different from the conceptual renders, but one thing is for sure…it will cost at least $380,000 USD.

Right now we’ve verified it can take off, climb, do turns. It can hold itself in a stable hover using LiDAR. Nice and accurate. It does slowly drift a bit at the moment, maybe a foot over five minutes, but you can give it a decent shove with a pole and it’ll wobble and then come right back to where it was,” said David Mayman of Jetpack Aviation to New Atlas
