"The miniature jet-turbine back pack is fast, powerful, and unlike rocket powered belts, safe and practical to operate," according to a press release.

Following the event, Mayman said: "It was an incredible experience, one I have been dreaming of since I was a young boy, it’s the culmination of decades of work by Nelson and me. But today is just the beginning.”
