The company behind the jetpack, Jetpack Aviation, stated that Mayman was using the "world's only true jetpack the JB-9," which utilises two engines powered by kerosene.

Describing how user-friendly the device is, JetAviation states: "We believe a JetPack should be just that – a jet turbine powered backpack that is capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), is extremely light and small and can easily be carried around by the pilot.

"It should be powerful enough to lift the pilot quickly to thousands of feet above the ground but small enough to fit into the trunk of a car. Meet the JB-9 JetPack."
