Martin Aircraft Company

Midway through 2007 Formworks met with Glenn Martin and the Martin Aircraft Company, where we were introduced to the labours of an R&D project that had taken the previous 26 years to get off the ground.

Their engineering expertise and efforts had culminated in the development of a Jetpack that had been secretly flying about in a small warehouse, on the outskirts of Christchurch’s CBD. With the engineering fundamentals of the Jetpack having been mostly completed, Glenn engaged Formworks to develop the original Jetpack aesthetic design to help realise his dream. Formworks are very grateful to the Martin Aircraft Company, for the opportunity to help bring into reality arguably one of the world’s most enduring popular icons… the Martin Jetpack.
