Personal Jet Packs Now Have Flight Permits

Martin Jet Pack

Of course, unless you have $100,000, you won’t have preordered a Martin Jetpack yet. But when you do, you’ll be able to legally fly it in New Zealand, no higher than 20 feet above the ground, or 25 feet above water, over uninhabited land only.
