Getting air!

"The dream of flying is as old as mankind. After nine years of development and a test phase of another six years, the Jetlev-Flyer is here, providing a sensational water sport experience. With its powerful 4-stroke-engines (130 - 300 HP), the flyer can reach an altitude up to 45 ft (15 m)m, a top-speed of 47 mph (75 km/h) and a cruising-range of up to 185 miles (300 km). Price: 100,000 Euro ($ 130,000)."

Without naming names, I'm willing to bet that there's a few here that it couldn't lift past ankle height even with 300 geegees.

I wonder how well the water pickup copes with a bit of chop. Wouldn't like to run out of water at 45'!

Does look like fun though
