Jet­pack to be new at­trac­tion

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MORE than 20 thrill seek­ers got the chance to try out a wa­ter pro­pelled jet­pack in Air­lie Beach on the week­end.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic and mem­bers of the tourism and me­dia in­dus­tries tried out the tech­nol­ogy that will soon be a reg­u­lar tourism at­trac­tion in Air­lie Beach.

Di­rec­tor of Jet­pack Ad­ven­tures Ritchie Gregg said ev­ery­one who had a go was up and fly­ing around within five min­utes and they all had an in­cred­i­ble time try­ing out the fu­tur­is­tic tourist at­trac­tion.

“We were in­vited by Whit­sun­day Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment and the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil to demon­strate the ex­cit­ing wa­ter pow­ered jet­pack to the re­gion” he said.

“Train­ing, demon­stra­tions and me­dia events will oc­cur for the first few weeks and then Jet­pack Ad­ven­tures will be open to the pub­lic here at Air­lie Beach in time for the sum­mer sea­son.”

Op­er­a­tors of the Jet­pack can learn to take off, fly, turn, hover and land in a mat­ter of min­utes.

The crew will be back in three weeks for an­other round of demon­stra­tions and will be tak­ing book­ings from the pub­lic
