The Hydro Powered Jetovator
This is the flying, steerable seat that suspends its rider 25′ in the air with three powerful jets of water. An easily installed and removable U-adapter re-directs 90% of the rearward thrust of an existing personal watercraft. A 40′ hose connects the PWC to the flying seat’s rear and “feeds” the seat’s three water jet nozzles with high-volume, low-pressure water for speeds up to 25 mph.
As a driver controls the trailing personal watercraft, the flying seat’s rider steers with two individually controlled water nozzle levers that enable backflips, barrel rolls, corkscrews, and even 10′ dives underwater.
The seat’s rider stands on two foot pads over a urethane foam-padded motorcyle-style seat. The lightweight flying seat’s hydrodynamic powder-coated aluminum tubular frame provides optimal thrust-to-weight ratio while enabling reliable use in salt water, and its buoyant polyethylene body provides flotation.
