LA 항공 스타트업, 제임스 본드형 제트팩 2백만불 모금

   오늘, 로스엔젤레스의 제트팩 항공 스타트업은 하늘을 나는 오토바이의 시제품을 개발하기 위해 2백만 달러의 자금을 확보했다고 발표했다.

현재 레크리에이션 스피더라고 불리는 이 비행 오토바이는 최고 400mph(640km/h)의 속도로 주행할 수 있고 15,000피트(4,500m)까지 오를 수 있을 것이다.

TechCrunch의 보고서에 따르면 스피더는 수동 및 자율적 제어 모두를 지원할 것이다.
기존 주차장만큼 작은 공간에서 수직 이착륙이 가능하며 등유, 디젤, 제트-A형 연료로 운행된다.

JPA는 이 레크리에이션 스쿠터가 조종사의 무게와 고도에 따라 10분에서 22분 동안 비행할 수 있을 것이라고 말한다.

JPA는 레크리에이션 스피더의 두 가지 뚜렷한 모델을 제작할 장기 계획을 가지고 있다고 말하는데, 그 중 하나는 상업적 사용을 위한 초경량 버전이 될 것이다.

Today, a tech startup in Los Angeles announced it has secured $2million in funding to develop a prototype for a flying motorcycle.

Currently called Recreational Speeder, the flying motorcycle will be able to travel at speeds of up to 400mph  and climb as high as 15,000 feet.

It was developed by JetPack Aviation (JPA), and backed by investments from Draper Associates, Jaan Tallinn, Y Combinator, Catheis Ventures, and other venture capital firms.

JetPack Aviation has announced it has received $2million venture capital funding to develop a prototype of its flying motorcycle, called the Recreational Speeder

Speeder will support both manual and autonomous control, according to a report from TechCrunch.

It will be able to both take off and land vertically from a space as small as a conventional parking spot, and it will run on either kerosene, diesel, or Jet-A types of fuel.

JPA says the Recreational Scooter will be able to remain airbound for between 10 and 22 minutes, depending on pilot weight and altitude.

JPA says they have long-term plans to produce two distinct models of the Recreational Speeder, one of which would be an ultralight version intended for commercial use.
