The World’s First Electric Jetpack

Introducing the EJ-1 Electric Jetpack

About Electric Jet Aircraft

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, EJAI 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 EJAI believe this opportunity is something the world is ready for, and the opportunity for success is massive.

EJAI 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.

About the EJ-1 Electric Jetpack

The EJ-1 is the world’s first electric jetpack, with a base weight of just 69 lbs and has an endurance from 2-14 minutes, depending on battery packs (Patent Pending). It can carry up to a 300 lb pilot. Control is a hybrid system, with roll controlled and balanced by computer but forward, reverse and yaw maneuvers effected manually with an intuitive flight control system.

The EJ-1 can be used for sport flying, personal transport, patrol, police work, fire/rescue operations, and a variety of other applications limited only by the imagination.
EJ-1 is available for sale as a quick-build kit (2-4 hours with hand tools) in 2018 and for the very reason- able price of $19,995.00.
