Some history - the first jetpack was developed in 1919 by the Russian inventor Aleksandr Andreyev. The 21st century brought us a new approach to water jetpacks where water is used as a high-density propulsion fluid. Water jetpacks can be operated below the water surface as well as above it. Starting from 2013, many water jetpack (also known as aqua jetpack) rental businesses are operating in different cities around the world.
