Jetpack flies with B&H Worldwide
19 / 10 / 2017
B&H Worldwide has been appointed as the global logistics partner for JetPack Aviation, creator of the world’s first turbine powered, backpack style JetPack.
JetPack Aviation (JPA), a leader in micro Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL), design made aviation history in late 2015 when chief executive David Mayman flew around the Statue of Liberty to demonstrate the company’s design and engineering capabilities.
The current JetPack model JB-10 is small enough to fit in the back of a standard SUV, and light enough to be carried by the pilot for easy transport and deployment. It can be powered by common kerosene or diesel car fuel, achieve flight speed upwards of 100 mph and an altitude in excess of 10,000 ft.
Said B&H chief executive Stuart Allen: "We have always prided ourselves on being at the cutting edge of aviation logistics and this exciting announcement opens up a whole new world of specialist logistics. We are delighted to have been chosen by the JetPack Aviation team to manage and deliver logistics services for these unique vehicles."
Added JetPack’s David Mayman: "Whether we are enabling the extraction of Special Forces soldiers, moving emergency medics from hospital to disaster site, or commuters from home to office – JPA is focused on a wide range of VTOL transportation solutions. We are excited to have the B&H team help us achieve these goals”.
