Believe

No Matter Who You Are, You Can

iJETPACK’s mission is to inspire, educate and enable you, and 2-billion others, to defy your ‘impossible’.

It isn’t about theory, it’s about action.

Starting with a 2021 World Record mission, to cross Australia by jetpack, flying 3,550 km in 5-minute increments, physically bearing jet thrust the entire time, under the pressure of a timeframe set by Guiness.

It’s the ultimate test of physical & mental resilience and the power of an innovation mindset in overcoming adversity to realise a dream.

I’m no athlete.  Far from it.  Just a self-directed high-school drop-out from humble beginnings who learned the power of reframing life’s challenges to work in my favour, achieving what many told me wasn’t possible.

Truth is, no matter who you are, YOU CAN transform your impossible. To possible. To real.

And we’re here to prove it.

Time Is Our Only Truly Finite Resource.

Don’t Waste It On Excuses.

DEFY IMPOSSIBLE

Live That Dream.

NOW.

Teamwork. Adventure. Grit. Compassion.
