2021 WORLD RECORD
JETSUIT: WEARABLE AIRCRAFT
With USA and UK flight training cut short by COVID19, iJETPACK Aeronautics was founded to design and build the World’s most powerful wearable aircraft for training and ultimately conducting the World Record attempt.
The gas turbine-powered Jetsuit is being crafted by former RAAF jet-fighter engineer, Dave ‘OzRocketman‘ Clarke, who single-handedly built and flies Australia’s only rocket-fuelled Jetpack.
To augment physical endurance, world-leading robotic rehabilitation engineer, Professor Lorenzo Masia is creating the World’s first Bionic Flight-Suit, with support from our official safety apparel partner, Dainese.
TRAIN & FLY
Flight EXPERIENCE CENTRE
As a proud Technology & Innovation Partner of the Australian Motorsport Innovation Precinct, Sydney Motorsport Park will soon be home to our purpose built Flight Training & Experience Centre, and the official test site for HeliJen‘s 2021 World Record attempt.
A handful of Flight Experiences will commence mid-2021 on a limited wait-list basis. Want to become one of the first to experience human flight on the World’s most powerful wearable aircraft? Email [email protected] to register your interest.
