JetPack Aviation has partnered with Airwolf 3D to accelerate the development of the World’s only true JetPack. Airwolf 3D and JetPack Aviation has displayed 3D printed JetPack components at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 7, 2016. JetPack Aviation and Airwolf 3D believe that a JetPack should be just that, a jet turbine powered backpack capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), but also lightweight and compact. Small enough to fit in the trunk of a car, the JetPack is capable of carrying its pilot thousands of feet above the ground. Early testing of JetPack Aviation’s JB-10 indicate that it will achieve flights over 10,000 feet in altitude, at speeds greater than 100 mph, and with an endurance of 10 minutes.
“We had been investigating more affordable options for rapidly prototyping our new JetPack fuel tank and teamed up with Airwolf 3D to print our tank on their AXIOM 3D printer with its large build volume” stated lead designer, Nelson Tyler.
“Airwolf 3D’s latest AXIOM 3D printer was the key enabling technology to allow us to rapidly prototype our new 3D Printed JetPack fuel tank prior to committing to actual tooling” stated Nelson Tyler, Designer JetPack Aviation.
“We are thrilled to be working with JetPack Aviation to advance the future of transportation and proud that the AXIOM 3D printer was selected as the means to achieve JetPack’s rapid prototyping needs” stated Erick Wolf, CEO and founder of Airwolf 3D.
