The Martin Jetpack - Fly the dream 2013.11.24

Christchurch, New Zealand - November 24, 2013 - Named as one of Time magazine's Top 50 inventions for 2010, the Martin Jetpack is the world's first practical jetpack, set to revolutionise the industries of aviation, recreation and transportation. Able to be flown by a pilot or via remote control, this inspirational and versatile product continues to attract strong interest from potential customers and investors worldwide. The Martin Jetpack was initially conceived of and developed by Glenn Martin in Christchurch in 1981 in response to another jetpack that had a one minute flight-time limit. Now over 30 years later, Martin Aircraft Company has assembled a team of the best experts in aviation to make the jetpack a reality, with flight capability of over 30 minutes at speeds up to 74 km/h and altitudes above 800 feet.

“Changing the position of the jetpack’s ducts has resulted in a quantum leap in performance over the previous prototype, especially in terms of the aircraft’s maneuverability,”
said Mr Coker.
“We have full certification from the Civil Aviation Authority for manned flight and have made great progress in recent months in increasing the flight time of the aircraft.”

The Martin Aircraft Company’s
present focus is on further improving the performance of the jetpack through some engine refinements in order to ready the jetpack for commercial sale.

The company has appointed James West to take on the role of Chief Finance Officer on a temporary basis with a particular emphasis on assisting the company prepare for the launch of an IPO in the near future.

Mr West was formerly CFO at Pyne Gould Corporation.

“The jetpack continues to attract interest from potential customers and investors worldwide,”
said Mr Coker.
“We are focussing initially on developing the jetpack for use as a first responder vehicle and heavy lift unmanned air vehicle.”

The company is also developing a jetpack simulator that will be available for sale in the next few months.


SAFETY

Safety has been a key consideration in all aspects of the development of the Martin Jetpack.

We look to enhance safety through design, manufacture, training, operations and dedicated safety systems
.

Simplicity of Design

The design of the Jetpack has been kept as simple as possible.

There is a low overall component count which aids reliability and overall safety.

Ducted fan

The use of ducted fans has a fundamental safety advantage over propellers and rotors.

The tips of the blades are contained within the duct and are less of a safety hazard than exposed blades.

This makes it safer for people near the aircraft, and reduces the risk of damage due to propellers or rotors coming into contact with objects.

Ease of Flight

A key component of aircraft safety comes from the ease of flight.

The Jetpack flight control system is computer controlled and stabilised.

With the current software load if the controls are released during flight the Jetpack achieves and maintains an upright attitude and maintains height (enters a hover).

During normal operations the system automatically maintains the desired height during manoeuvres.

Pilot Protection

The pilot is protected by the pilot module and the structure of the Jetpack.

The pilot module includes a rollover bar, frontal protection and arm restraint.

The structure of the Jetpack provides protection to the pilot from the rear and side, and the landing gear provides protection from below.

Parachute

A key safety system is the parachute system.
This is a ballistic parachute system, with ballistic extraction and inflation of the chute.

This leads to very quick chute opening, which enables the pilot to be saved in the case of a catastrophic failure down to a low height.

With its patented technology the Martin Jetpack is poised to alter the dynamics of aviation.

Initially designed as a personal Jetpack for individuals in the leisure market, the technology is being recognised for its applications across a broad range of different sectors.

Based in Christchurch New Zealand, Martin Aircraft Company is a privately owned company with over 80 shareholders.

Established originally as a research and development company, Martin Aircraft Company is now being positioned to enter the commercial market.

As the company launches its first Technical Product, research and development will continue to identify additional customer requirements and integrate these into subsequent product models.
