Zapata Racing has achieved the dream of mankind and offers you a glimpse of Franky Zapata’s flying innovation, the Flyboard Air. The Independent Propulsion Unit represents 4 years of hard work for a result exceeding all records:
– Autonomous flight up to 10,000 feet
– Top speed of 150km/h (93,2 mph)
– 10 min autonomy
This thing appears to take the handling and control system of the Flyboard, but replace the water jets with at least one jet turbine engine and what appears to be a backpack fuel tank. The Flyboard Air won’t launch as a consumer product in 2016, but maybe we’ll see it launch next year!
