Who needs lowcost airlines when you can have one of these babies?

Given that these things are regularly advertised for sale in most blokey type magazines, you'd think they actually work.

Saw in Flyer or somesuch recently that so far they've only actually got a tethered test machine to rise to about a foot above the ground.

Some way to go then!

Indeed. Would make a hell of a mess if one of them got sucked into a jet engine.

Also in the current world climate it'd not really be the most sensible of things to have on the open market for anyone to purchase via mail order.

I quite like it!

Of course, it will still be a ways off ...
