Video: Jetovator Featured on Travel Channel’s “Ride-iculous!”


There’s no shortage new toys that quickly attach to the jet pump of a personal watercraft these days. Whether you want to fly with a jetpack strapped to your back, lock your feet in to a Flyboard, try your hand at a jet-powered Hoverboard or streak across the sky like Iron Man, water-propelled flight has become the newest form of entertainment.

The Jetovator is not exactly new but still makes us smile. It’s bicycle-like design provides significantly more stability than say, the Hoverboard and allows for a full range of motion while maintaining a feeling closer to a sport bike.

Late last year, the Jetovator was featured on the Travel Channel’s “Ride-iculous!” program, showing riders a series of complicated rolls, stalls, dives and flips. The thrust of the the center jet helped maintain plenty of height while the side thrusters manipulated the direction and pitch of the bike.

Below is the official press release for the Jetovator with the clip featured on “Ride-iculous!”

Are you ready to take watersports airborne?

The JETOVATOR, designed and built in the USA by Jetavation Inc, is an easy to install watersports accessory that utilizes the jet thrust of any standard personal watercraft(PWC) to propel and elevate a light-weight, flying bike.

Designed with the familiarity and comfort of a motorcycle, riders can fly at speeds up to 25 MPH, dive 10 feet below the water, and even perform daring aerial stunts such as barrel rolls and back flips. The Jetovator can reach heights up to 30 feet utilizing high volume, low pressure water supplied via a 40 foot hose connected to the thrust output of a standard PWC.

The Jetovator is one of several new water-propelled flying devices in the fast growing vertical watersports segment, and the Jetovator offers the highest level of safety and ease of use.

Jetovator pilots are able to control their own height and direction by manipulating the two front control nozzles. The Jetovator pilot is assisted by a trained instructor onboard the trailing PWC who can limit the speed, height, and provide aide if needed to new riders. The safety features have made it a perfect rental for marinas and resorts looking for an attractive new watersports alternative.

The experience is up to YOU! Mild or wild; Jetovator is fun for all skill levels.
