If Jetman Dubai has its way, you’ll soon be able to reenact Tony Stark’s on-screen exploits in real life. No, the company isn’t readying a new set of facial grooming products. Instead, it’s reached a new milestone in its quest to develop a fully operational jetpack that will let you fly around like everyone’s favorite red and gold Avenger.

The problem is fuel consumption .
It probably had less than 5 minutes airtime.
They probably need to make multi stage compressors.

Those mini turbines catch fire on a regular basis too, not a good idea.
What to do when you get one of these in your armpit. !

Insane? Yes! Practical - not so much.
Looks like a fun toy for rich boys (and gals) and maybe useful to perform some jobs.
