Electric Jet Aircraft
Anderson, Indiana, USA
The EJ-1 was a submission for Boeing’s GoFly prize, which built off of 11 years of development by Electric Jet Aircraft on a gas-powered Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) concept.
The jetpack has a base weight of 31 kg. With a thrust of 178 kg it can lift a pilot of up to 131 kg (300 lbs) for 2-14 minutes depending on their weight. It is a hybrid system that includes two 96vLiPo batteries. Roll is controlled and balanced by a computer, but forward, reverse, and yaw maneuvers are manually controlled.
The EJ-1 comes in a quick-build kit, and costs $19,995.00.
