Turbine Training Center Blog for Cessna 208 Caravan & Beechcraft King Air pilots
Quickly now, what do Daedalus and David Mayman and Nelson Tyler have in common? Well, they each created a means by which man could accomplish individual flight! Daedalus developed wings made of feathers and wax so that he and his son, Icarus, could escape from the Island of Crete. And, Mayman and Tyler, founders of JetPack Aviation, developed, well, Jet Packs! Now we all know what happened to poor Icarus, and we can only hope that something similar does not happen to Mischa Pollack! You see, Pollack has been chosen to be the first civilian to fly a Jetpack, making that particular mode of flight that much more of a reality for all of us, and making JETPACK PILOTS AND CESSNA 208 TRAINING something of interest to us all!
“Well,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, chuckled, “we aren’t doing any Jetpack training here at this time, of course, but,” he continued, “we are interested in any and all Aviation Innovations, and the Jetpack certainly qualifies.”
Pollack, who was chosen as the first civilian to “pilot” a personal Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) craft, is a self-proclaimed “aviation nut.” He was chosen via an equity crowdfunding contest, and is elated to have been chosen.
