Jet Packs

Equipment / Conveyances

Jet packs are an unusual form of conveyance that more commonly see use with military forces or fringe groups (although a number of commercial jet packs are available). A jet pack is simply a propulsion system that a pilot can strap on, allowing flight over short distances. Arm and wrist controls are often employed for maneuvering, and many civilian packs have limited sound baffles to conform with local noise ordinances; while these baffles reduce noise, they also reduce the unit's speed as well.
