    The three-year wait for a recreational jetpack may be almost over--assuming regulators give their approval.
    New Zealand's Martin Aircraft said that its Martin Jetpack which has a 200-horsepower piston gasoline engine that powers a couple of ducted fans remained aloft for more than seven minutes in its latest test. That may not be enough time to get you to the store and back, but it represents a record.
