Frequently Asked Questions

1. How does it work?
It's simple. You can fly over or through the water. Water is forced up to your jet pack from a pump below. Inside your JetLev backpack, the water is channeled downward into two powerful jets. The downward force of the water jets creates lift. You move the Jet Pack arms to go up or down, and to turn right or left. Your instructor will guide you through your training and flight.

2. What can I expect on my first flight?
A great experience. Remember, you control turning and elevation. After initial instructions, your instructor will place you floating in the water chest high. As with any water sport, you learn basic skills, reach your comfort level then try the next skill level, an so on. OK? You start chest high in the water learning safe easy wide turns, while holding your chest water level position. After you reach your comfort level, your instructor guides you to elevate your waist out of the water. After you master the turns and elevation control at waist high, your instructor will guide you to have only your feet in the water, only after reaching your comfort level. The next level will be free flight and some tricks.

3. Is this safe?
Yes! This new water sport has proven to be safer than jet skiing and parasailing. Your certified instructor will fit you with a USCG-approved safety vest and a safety helmet that also allows you to hear your instructor during your flight. And the Jet Pack harness floats for added safety.
