Are you sure it is tethered to the dock by the feed tube, as you put it papa? I thought it looked like the "feed tube" was dragging something around with it.

Freedom, exhilaration, adventure: The dream of personal flight is as old as mankind. In the 21st century the daring vision of Daedalus has finally come true.

It sounded like a crazy idea. But after nine long years of development including six years of intensive testing and refinements, our creativity, persistence and unshakeable belief in our ideas have finally produced an incredible and revolutionary personal flying machine.
We are very proud to present our spectacular patented new product - the JETLEV-FLYER*.

A SENSATIONAL NEW WATERSPORT!
AN INCOMPARABLE NEW DIMENSION IN FREEDOM!

The JETLEV-FLYER employs a powerful 4-stroke engine
(155 - 215 HP) and water nozzle reaction force to achieve stable, controlled flight. The unique design helps to make flight controls very simple, light and intuitive. It can accommodate pilots of 1,50 - 2,00 m in height and 40 - 120 kg in weight.
A digital fly-by-wire system is used to control the throttle. For safety and performance we only use high quality materials and workmanship in manufacturing.

Depending on pilot weight, a standard JETLEV-FLYER could reach an altitude of 10 m, top speeds of 65 km/h and has a cruising duration of 1 - 2 hours.
For special applications, future designs could achieve higher altitudes and top speeds, extended range of up to 300 km and even travel both above and below the water´s surface.

For all its capabilities the JETLEV-FLYER is amazingly easy to learn and operate.
All customers will receive a high quality training video and detailed instructions from a qualified personal trainer to learn the special procedures of takeoff, flying, turning, hovering and landing.

Experience the amazing sensation of levitation and personal flight that only the JETLEV-FLYER can provide.
We take orders for the JETLEV-FLYER beginning in January 2009. Dealer inquiries are welcome.

THE JETLEV-FLYER - STOP DREAMING! START FLYING!

*The JETLEV-FLYER is produced and marketed under license
from Jetlev Sports Inc., Florida, USA

Aha! its not tethered to the beach, you drag along the pump..


So how's it work?
Ramke doesn't offer any details at his website, but according to Der Westen, a floating pump powered by a four-stroke engine (115 to 130 horsepower) sends water through a 140-foot-long hose to a pair of nozzles mounted on the "jet pack." It looks a lot like the "personal propulsion device" Canadian inventor Raymond Li patented about two years ago. Li calls it JetLev, for jet levitation.
Li has touted the safety of the contraption, noting that the pack floats, it has no moving parts and the water shoots out of the two nozzles at no more than 100 PSI. You're also no more than a few dozen yards above the water if something goes pear-shaped. That makes the risk a little more acceptable than, say, strapping on a hydrogen-peroxide pack and jetting across a gorge like Eric Scott or soaring over the alps or across the English Channel on homemade jet wings like Yves Rossy.
Ramke says the JetLev-Flyer is a breeze to operate, and the €100,000 ($128,000 U.S.) price tag includes "detailed instructions by a qualified personal trainer." At that price, its no surprise that Ramke told Spiegel most of the people buying them are Russian oligarchs.

For a price of only $125,000 (approx) its not going to be on my shopping list.

The guts are all in the pod being towed around behind it, and there has to be some sort of correlation between hose length, weight of pilot and height above water as the thrust cannot come from the pack the pilot is wearing

Ah...a homemade one using Tropic airplane parts would be a lot more fun...and much cheaper..just a few cases of Belikin and some fun evenings in the hangar.

Wonder how much noise that makes? I owned a powerwash company for several years and those units were considerably smaller and made enough noise we used ear protection. And I bet dragging the power station in rough water creates a lot of jerking on the rider.

I would try it though. It does look like fun. Has anyone seen a demo with live sound?
