The ultimate gravity- and traffic-defying machine has appeared in comic books, science fiction novels, Hollywood films, and circus side shows for decades. Jet Pack Pilot, Eric Scott, have made their way into the Guinness Book of World Records.
The maverick daredevil secured a world speed record May 10, 2009 at Scotland’s official motor show, MotorFair, by reaching a speed of 68mph in the hydrogen-peroxide powered Go Fast! Jet Pack. The conditions improved over the weekend and Scott was able to fight the 8mph headwind.
“I knew this was going to be a special weekend for breaking records,” said Scott, Go Fast! Jet Pack Pilot. “Knockhill” is a great location and when the weather improved, it was all about going fast!”
