Experience St. Pete/Clearwater From a New Perspective
Take a moment to float in the waters off St. Pete Beach and lounge on its crystalline sands before donning a JetLev Flyer at TradeWinds Island Resort and soaring high above the Gulf. As you rise to all-new heights, you’ll take in breathtaking views of the city and coastline, experiencing one of the most thrilling water sports rides ever. Many describe the feeling of flying and hovering as one of ‘weightlessness.’
The Flight of a Lifetime
Leaving from the JetLev Flight Center, flyers strap into their jet pack for a 45-minute flight experience that includes 15 minutes of training time and a total 30 minutes of airtime. The custom-designed packs are powered by 450 pounds of thrust from a 250 HP SuperCharged engine, propelling riders up to 30 feet in the air at speeds of 30 mph.
Onlookers stand in awe on the beach as a futuristic jet pack sends guests twirling and levitating above the ocean. The throttle, which is typically controlled by a remote flight instructor, steers the pack and an accompanying flight assistant also rides along on a WaveRunner to ensure a safe experience.
Safety First at the JetLev Flight Center
There are several restrictions for guests interested in taking flight. Guests must be at least 18 years of age and they must sport the provided helmet and life jacket. Advance reservations are required online or by phone.
