The Martin Jet Pack

Glen Martin made the first ‘Martin Jet Pack’. He is famous for what he has made, he is going to be rich with his jet pack.
They had to test the jet pack with a dummy so that they could know if it is safe and then they would test it with a person in the pilot position.
The jet pack can go where no helicopter can go like between buildings and sides of mountains.

The Martin Jet Pack works by two really powerful, big fans called ‘superfans’.
The Jet pack shot into the sky over the Canterbury Plains at a climb rate of 800ft per minute, reaching an altitude of 5,000ft. Captured on video by TVNZ’s SUNDAY.The U.S military are showing and interest in buying the Martin Jet Pack

Kia ora Chelsea I enjoyed reading your blog about the Martin jetpack. I think it would be great to come to school on one of those jet packs. You have a really good picture which shows what it looks like. Keep up the blogging!
