Kiwi Glen Martin is the inventor of the Martin Jet pack that can fly like a bird.
The Jet pack wasn't flying that high that the U.S media laughed and joked around about his invention that made him more determined to make it happen.
He said he would use a remote machine to control it at first with a crash dummy, then if its good enough than a person can act as pilot.
The Martin Jet pack that flew at Ashburton recently with a rocket propelled parachute flying over 5,000 mt high above sea level and landed safely.
This invention can do what a helicopter cant do such as fly around the sides of a cliff in between sides of a building and trees.
