On Friday, witnessed by independent adjudicators from Fife Constabulary armed with pro-laser speed enforcement guns to validate the attempt, Eric Scott will set the official Guinness World Record for fastest Jet Pack flight. On Saturday and Sunday, Eric will aim to smash his recorded speed in front of crowds of thousands at Knockhill’s MotorFair, the UK’s only motor show this year.
“I am always looking to push the envelope of what is possible”, said Eric Scott, Go Fast! Jet Pack Pilot. “To be able to attempt another world record on the Go Fast! Jet Pack is such an honor and a thrill! We hope to wow the audiences at MotorFair and the world with another record setting flight!”
Most recently, the Go Fast! Jet Pack made history in November of 2008 when a new world record for the longest Jet Pack flight was successfully made 1500 feet across the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Colorado at an amazing 1,053 feet high above the canyon floor. The amazing and jaw-dropping flight was seen the entire world over. To date, an official Jet Pack speed record has not been clocked by officials; this record flight will be the very first of its kind.
