This startup wants you to test its latest flying machine

Meet the JetRacer

Not Zapata’s first rodeo

Zapata’s had a long history with flying machines. In August 2019, he made history by crossing the English Channel — roughly 35 kilometers (22 miles) wide — on a hoverboard designed by his self-named company, Zapata.

What does the JetRacer mean for the future of mobility?

While there may be use case applications in situations like military search and rescue but, much like the promises of the Xturismo hoverbike or the Omni Hoverboard, this is most likely to be utilized for hobbyists only on private land or at commercially-approved events.

Want to try it out for yourself?

The company invites people to “become the pioneers of the mobility of the future.”
