Flyboard Successfully Tests an Air-Powered Personal Flight Platform, The Flyboard Air

Zapata Racing has successfully tested an air-powered personal flight platform they are calling the Flyboard Air. The company says the Flyboard Air has the exact same behavior as its Flyboard Pro Series, with the obvious difference that the Pro Series, like the other Flyboard models, is powered by jets of water.

During the test, founder Franky Zapata flew the Flyboard Air for over three minutes and reached a top speed of 55 km/h, and the company claims the final product will be able to fly autonomously for 10 minutes and reach a speed of 150 km/h.
