Human Flight Exprience

Could Marines and military troops be getting their own flying cars?

Could Marines and military troops be getting their own flying cars?

Visitors to the Florida Keys can now pretend to be and fly like James Bond with a new watersport providing levitation-like flight.

Jetpack Adventures is based in Key West and a similar experience is slated to be offered by another operator beginning soon in nearby Marathon.

The Florida Keys is the first region in the U.S. to offer the experience to travelers.

Participants strap on a flight pack that looks similar to the kind James Bond used in "Thunderball."

But the JetLev R200 is tethered by a 30-foot hose to a small equipment watercraft with a high-volume propulsion pump using sea water as the propellant to provide lift.

Intuitive flight controls allow individuals to pilot their own water-powered jet pack, learning to take off, fly, make soft turns, hover and land.

Cost for the one and a half hour experience is 249 dollars and includes about a half-hour of flight time.
