If your Bentley isn’t fast enough but the Gulfstream's in the workshop having a new spa fitted, strap on a Martin Aircraft jetpack to get from A to B in style.
Due to go on sale by mid-2017, around A$250,000 will buy cashed-up flyboys and flygirls their very own personal jetpack.
(Expect to pay more for fully-comprehensive insurance if you land through somebody’s roof from an altitude of up to 3,000 feet.)
You can also fly by your local service station and fill up with regular unleaded petrol, with a full tank of gas lasting roughly 30 minutes including take-off and landing and getting you as far as 30km down the road at speeds of up to 74km/h.
“There are a lot of rich people in China and many are keen to own their own jetpack,” Chairman Ruopeng Liu of Kuang-Chi, the investment company behind Martin Aircraft, told The Australian.
“Not because it replaces their car, but because a jetpack is a jetpack.”
With a 45-litre tank, that 30-minute flight costs just A$54 based on today’s petrol prices of $1.199 per litre, which makes owning your own jetpack quite affordable after the quarter-million outlay.
