   Fastest jet-pack flight-world record set by Eric Scott   
 
  Knockhill Racing Circuit, Scotland, UK -- Internationally renowned Go Fast! Jet Pack pilot, Eric Scott, 46, from Denver, USA, was clocked reaching 68mph while harnessed to the jet pack, powered by hydrogen peroxid -setting the world record for the Fastest jet-pack flight.
  
   Eric said: "I knew this was going to be a special weekend for breaking records. Knockhill is a great location and when the weather improved it was all about going fast!"(enlarge photo)

   Mr Scott, 46, who worked as a stuntman on films such as Poison Ivy with Drew Barrymore and the TV series Walker, Texas Ranger starring Chuck Norris, said the wind had curtailed his speed.   

   In November 2008 Eric became the first jet-propelled man to cross the 1,053ft wide Royal Gorge Canyon in Colorado, USA. Mr Scott has clocked up nearly 1,000 solo flights.

   The jet pack currently carries only enough fuel to last about 30 seconds, but a new device is in development that will eventually allow up to 30 minutes of flying time.
   Adjudicators from Fife Constabulary used speed laser guns to measure Mr Scott’s attempt which could put him in the record books.

    PC James Henry, from Fife Constabulary, who will be promoting road safety at the event, said: "Officers were pleased to be involved with Eric's world record attempt for the Fastest jet-pack flight. "At least on this occasion he did not mind being caught speeding."     

   Mr Scott said: “It's just that sensation that you get when you take off. It's amazing.”
