PAHRUMP, Nev. (Oct. 19, 2014) -­‐ Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to fly through the air? Visitors to Pahrump can now experience the exhilaration firsthand with Pahrump’s newest attraction – real water jetpacks.

Managed by Jetpack America, the most experienced jetpack rental operator in the world, thrill-­‐ seekers can fly, hover, walk and dive underwater using hydro-­‐powered jetpacks.

Located just 60 miles west of Las Vegas, Jetpack America brings this one-­‐of-­‐a-­‐kind jetpack experience to the brand-­‐new eight-­‐acre freshwater lake at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch.

Director of Pahrump Tourism Arlette Ledbetter said, “Great attractions already exist in the Town of Pahrump including two award-­‐winning wineries, affordable lush golf courses and Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. With the addition of the lake and jetpacks at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch, we are sure more visitors will be enticed to visit us.”

Fly 30-­‐feet High at 25MPH

Water enthusiasts and daredevils can choose from 15 to 60-­‐minute flight experiences. First-­‐ time pilots will attend pre-­‐flight training in an instructional classroom-­‐like setting. Once guests are familiar with the safety and basics of the jetpacks, they are equipped with a life vest and a walkie-­‐talkie helmet and strapped into a jetski-­‐powered jetpack. As instructors control the throttle, guests have the opportunity to soar up to 30 feet in the air at speeds up to 25 mph.

“Jetpack America’s trained and professional staff will ensure that everyone’s flight experience is safe and most importantly, fun,” explains Dean O’Malley, president of Jetpack America. “We have flown everyone including an 85-­‐year old retiree to paraplegics and quadriplegics.”

Packages from $179

Jetpack America flight experiences start at $179. Video and photo souvenir packages are also available for purchase. For those who are looking for a less adrenaline-­‐focused activity, Jetpack

America offers paddleboard rentals at $30 an hour. Flight experiences are available by appointment only. For more information or to book your jetpack flight experience, visit www.jetpackamerica.com.
