Relaunching Jet-x: an old fashioned hobby with a modern twist!

When we were growing up we loved to build and fly model airplanes - and we still do!

One day a kid came to our neighborhood park with the most incredible model jet airplane that flew unlike anything we had ever seen before.

With a quiet hissing sound and a leaving a faint trail smoke, the plane shot up into the blue… and we were hooked.

The plane was powered by a little solid fuel jet engine made by a British company called “Jetex.” Kids all over the world used to love building Jetex powered airplanes, from simple balsa gliders to authentic scale models.

Unfortunately, the Jetex Company went out of business in the ‘70’s and model jet planes were mostly forgotten.

It’s been almost 50 years since we first saw that Jet plane, and now we’ve finally figured out a way to bring back an old hobby with a couple of modern twists.

It took several years of research and hundreds of tests to reformulate and redesign our new solid fuel Jet-x engines. We’re also bringing back some of the classic original airplanes, as well as some new modern planes too.

We’re getting ready to announce a crowd funding campaign to help us launch our new planes and engines – please sign up to be notified when we launch here:
