    Your experience providers will drive you from the training session to the Maunalua Bay.

    You do not need experience to fly a jetpack, but you must be a good swimmer and not have a fear of heights. 
  3. What do I need to bring with me?
    All participants must bring a valid form of ID. It is recommended to bring a swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, water and snacks.

  5. Will I be able to fly?
    Every pilot will learn differently, but most first-time pilots are airborne within their first 5-10 minutes in the jetpack. The instructor will handle the throttle and provide feedback throughout the flight.
  6. Do I need to be strong to fly?
    You do not need tremendous strength to fly the jetpack. Some pilots report arm and shoulder fatigue after the first flight because first-time flyers tend to over-tense instead of relaxing their grip. 
  7. Can the water from the jetpack hurt my arms and legs?
    It is advised to keep clear of the jets, which can expel up to 1,000 gallons of water per minute. However, pilots can safely put their hands and feet in the jet streams with no major discomfort.
  8. How high will I go and what happens if I fall?
    The maximum height of a jetpack flight is 30 feet into the air and if you fall from that height, you will enter the water at less than 30 MPH.
