Kiwi jetpack invention gets ready for domestic takeoff

The chance to fly a Kiwi-invented jetpack will be available in New Zealand early next year.

Almost a year to the day after it first got worldwide attention, the Martin Jetpack is back on show at the United States' annual EAA air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and Christchurch's Martin Aircraft Company is also announcing plans to allow the public to try out a "low, slow" version.
