Up, up and away! History Was Made Again with Apollo Jetpack

Up, up and away! History Was Made Again with Apollo Jetpack

August 23rd will be remembered as a special day in jetpack historyEric Scott, the most experienced and longest flying jetpack pilot in the world, emerged from beneath the waters of Lake San Cristobal and flew straight into the sky. He covered 510 feet in distance, and landed on a small piece of land all while strapped to an 800-horsepower rocket. The stunt is first of its kind.

“I have dreamt of it for 15 years. It was the coolest thing I have ever experienced. I wish everyone could experience what I felt today. The best way I can describe it is to imagine the dramatic change in environment – from water, to air, to land, all while strapped to an insanely powerful machine. It was awesome!” said Scott after the flight.

Although jetpacks have existed since the 1960s, today’s stunt highlights the extreme versatility of the Apollo Jetpack’s cutting-edge technology.

With 15 years in the business, some of Scott’s most impressive work saw him flying over the Royal Gorge near Cañon City, a span that required him to fly over 1,000 feet in roughly 21 seconds. It should be no surprise that Scott also currently holds the fastest jetpack flight record (a staggering 75-mph) – a feat set while doing similar work for GO FAST! Energy Drink, the prior sponsor of the Apollo Jetpack.

Their next performance will be the kickoff for the Colorado Extreme Sports Video Competition on Friday, August 26th, at 7:30PM at ViewHouse in Denver. Come out and meet Eric Scott and other members of Apollo Jetpack Team. #belimitless
