Martin jetpack alvaro rubio[1]final

  1. 1. Martin Jetpack<br />The Martin Jetpack is a experimental aircraft. Its trade name calls it a “jet pack” , but is not jet- or rocket-powered. It has been developed by the Martin Aircraft Company of New Zealand, and was unveiled on July 29, 2008 at the Experimental Aircraft Association´s 2008 Air Venture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA. It is classified by the Federal Aviation Administration as an experimental ultra-ligt airplane.<br />Unlike earlier devices called "jetpacks", the Martin Jetpack is the first to be considered a practical device. It has been under development for over 27 years and uses a gasoline (premium) engine with two ducted fans to provide lift. Theoretically it can reach a speed of 60 miles per hour, an altitude of 8,000 feet, and fly for about 30 minutes on a full fuel tank. Martin Aircraft planned to deliver the first jetpacks to ten customers in early 2010.<br />
  2. 2. The Jetpack is a small VTOL device, with two ducted fans that provide lift. It is powered by a 2.0 litre V-4 piston 200-horsepower gasoline (premium) engine. The pilot straps him/herself onto it, and does not sit. It is much too big for him/her to walk about wearing it, so it cannot be classed as a backpack device. It does not have a jet turbine or rocket motor, however the Jet in Jetpack refers to the production of two jets of air from its ducted fans.<br /> Most helicopters require a tail rotor to counteract the rotor torque; this and the articulated head complicate flying, construction and maintenance enormously. The Jetpack is designed to be torque neutral – there is no tail rotor, no collective, no articulating or foot pedals – and this simplifies flying dramatically. Pitch and roll are controlled by one hand, yaw and the throttle by the other.<br />The Martin Jetpack meets the Federal Aviation Administration's classification of an ultra-light aircraft. It uses the same gasoline used in cars, is relatively easy to fly, and is cheaper to maintain and operate than other ultra-aircraft.<br />
  3. 3. General Features<br />Capacity: 1 passenger<br />Length: 5 ft <br />Wingspan: (width) 5.5 ft <br />Height: 5 ft <br />Emptyweight: 250 lb <br />Useful load: 280 lb <br />Powerplant: 2× Martin Aircraft 2.0L V4. 2 strokes, 200 hp (150 kw) Max 6000 rpm each<br />Propellerdiameter: 1 ft 7 in <br />
  4. 4. This invention is a great discovery in the world of science, seems unimaginable to be able to fly like in the films or comics.<br />
  5. 5. My opinion<br />This invention ,in my opinion, is a great advance technologically, but this invention is too expensive not affordable foreverybody.<br />With this invention you can fly, although not more than 40 minutes. <br />It is a very innovating apparatus and surely it is very difficult to use , due to outpost technologies. <br />The Web site of this invention is http://www.martinjetpack.com/<br />I believe that it is a great invention, it is very good invention but it is not possible to acquire it each person due to its lifted price<br />
