Double takes are common on the shores of Lake Havasu. After all, it’s not every day that you see someone hovering 29 feet above the water. The subjects aren’t paranormal apparitions, and the scene isn’t a fleeting haunting—it’s just another day for the certified flight instructors at Water Jetpack Adventure: strap customers into the five-point quick-release harness of their Jetlev R200 recreational jetpacks for gravity-defying flying sessions that include flight demos. Assembled from top-of-the-line parts and materials—such as pressure seals made with O-ring systems found on deep-sea submarines—the jetpack features a built-in stability mechanism and a multitasking hose that powers flights with pressurized water and keeps pilots attached to the boat and away from Icarus' house parties. Pilots stay protected during midair jaunts with safety equipment including a personal flotation device, a helmet and head support, and a safety saddle.
