Jetpack inventor shoots for blast-off next year
Zealand, Mr Martin said he couldn’t understand why jetpacks never got developed.
“A lot of guys have their projects in their garages fixing up cars and what not, I had jetpacks,” Martin said. “It’s still in development, but we have expressions of interest for about 6000 aircraft.”
The company listed on the ASX in February and Mr Martin has since resigned as nonexecutive director, although he still holds a 15 per cent stake.
The stock – issued at 40 – hit an intra-day peak of $3.15 in a crazy day of trading in March. The stock closed 3 higher at 62 yesterday.
