From our EJ-1 Electric Jetpack and the work we did in 2021-2022 for DARPA, to the CanopE-Jet, which was a commercial product that came as a result of that DARPA contract, we have built and flown electric jet powered personal aircraft. And then there’s ArcSpear, which is on track to be our most successful product. Whatever your aviation needs may be, Electric Jet Aircraft is here to help.
The ArcSpear is a super-fast, all-Electric Jet powered quadcopter, with top speeds approaching 180 mph. It is also capable of carrying up to 20 lbs of payload and/or batteries for extended range.
ArcSpear is FPV controlled, and can be delivered with FPV goggles and radio in the turn-key system. We use top-quality electronics and materials.
Because there are no exposed rotor or propeller blades, the ArcSpear can literally bounce off of obstructions, and keep flying. The system lends itself well to military or law enforcement applications. With a 20 lb payload capacity, there is little that ArcSpear can’t do.

CanopE-Jet Electric Jet Powered Paraglider
The CanopE-Jet is the world’s first all-electric, jet-powered paramotor system capable of pilot weights up to 250 lbs and speeds, with the right paraglider system, of 63 mph (legal limit of Part 103 Ultralight maximum).
With an empty weight of just 49 lbs, complete, you can expect flight times of 25 minutes, and extra batteries can be carried for longer flight times. With such a light pack, you can afford to either carry more batteries, or take even more advantage of thermals, allowing for longer flight times and endurances.
The fast charging system allows you to full charge a pack of batteries in 25 minutes as well, so you can swap packs after each flight for continuous flying.
The CanopE-Jet is extremely compact, and requires no breakdown to fit in the side seat of a sportscar, or the back seat of a sedan, or in a trunk, or behind the back seats of an SUV. In fact, it can be packaged as checked baggage on an airliner!
With 120 lbs of constant and accelerating thrust, you’ll have plenty of launch and climb power, with smooth acceleration in flight and immediate responses from the digital throttle.
No fuel, no combustion noise, and what noise it makes sounds like a personal jet, giving you just the right kind of attention at your flying field.
The CanopE-Jet could also be adapted to work with hang-gliders, watercraft (like kayaks, surfboards, paddle-boards, etc.), or ground vehicles (go-karts, trikes, bicycles) for propulsion. CanopE-Jet is a multi-functional propulsion tool for a variety of applications, limited only by your imagination.
The CanopE-Jet sells for $17,995.00 and comes ready-to-fly, including batteries, a charger system, and harness, ready to attach to your paraglider or other application.
Order your CanopE-Jet today! We are ready for production and can deliver (based on supply chain functionality) within 8 weeks lead time.

Archive of Past Ideas
Pete Bitar has been dreaming about and working toward personal, VTOL flight for almost 40 years, starting as a 13-year-old in Portland, Oregon. Pete started out by saving his money to buy a “Space Ranger Jet Flying Platform” out of the back of a Popular Science magazine.
When Boeing announced the Go Fly Prize, EJA was already following on the 11 years of work on various gas-powered VTOL designs under sister company, AirBuoyant, LLC, in designing a new generation of all-electric, VTOL aircraft.
The excitement of the futuristic concepts of personal jetpacks, flying motorcycles, and electric flying taxis makes EJA believe this opportunity is something the world is ready for, and the opportunity for success is massive.
EJA is working hard to be the first to offer a personal electric jetpack to the market, and is in the process of patenting this aircraft type.
