Martin Jetpack

Martin Aircraft will display the Jetpack at Le Bourget exhibition centre, Paris, France, from 15 till June 21 2015.

The last event held in 2013 attracted 315,000 visitors and resulted in historic high orders for aircraft manufacturers being announced, totalling approximately $150 billion.

Peter Coker, Managing Director of Martin Aircraft said: "Our attendance at this year's Paris Air Show will set the stage for the global launch of this inspirational and versatile aircraft."

"Commercial Jetpacks are no longer the domain of science fiction. The future is here today" said Mr Coker.

Over the six days of the Paris Air Show, the Martin Jetpack will be exhibited to potential global customers and suppliers, as well as simulator demonstrations being available.

Martin Aircraft is currently focused on developing the Martin Jetpack for use as a first responder vehicle and a heavy lift unmanned air vehicle.
