It’s no secret that getting to some places can be quite difficult, not to mention how to properly provide the necessary medical assistance to the victims – the most beautiful Lake District National Park in the UK is one such example that somehow attracts tourists, some of whom may find themselves in a situation where they need urgent medical attention. It is with the goal of inventing a way to get doctors and necessary equipment to such tourists faster that Gravity Industries, which specializes in the development of individual flight devices, has signed a contract with Great North Air Ambulance Service.
The two companies are now working on their new prototype flight jetpack, the JetSuit, which is designed to get the medic to the injured tourist as quickly and safely as possible. It’s worth noting that JetSuit is a bit of a reworking of the previous jetpack from Gravity Industries, which was originally designed to deliver small-sized cargo, but then got repurposed to deliver people.
Moreover, the CEO of Gravity Industries, Richard Brown, personally made the first test flight of this jetpack, trying to get to one of the most remote parts of this national park – he managed to do this in just two minutes, while walking there it is necessary it takes almost half an hour to get there. It becomes obvious that such a colossal time difference could cost someone life and health, and therefore the development will continue to be tested and updated.
It is worth noting the fact that so far the JetSuit jetpack one way or another needs some debugging and optimization of individual elements, because the new project is about the need to offer end users, in the person of doctors, the safest possible way to use it, including number in the most windy and generally problematic weather. It remains only to await the final completion of the current stage of preparation of the final version of the suit and the first more detailed and complex tests involving some really problematic weather factors.
