Rocket Compulsion

David Mayman is living the dream and I think that every boy in Australia and probably most men dream of flying through the skies on a jetpack. Whether it was the Rocketeer flying through Nazi infested Germany, James Bond using M's latest rocket packs or more realistically, a man flying down to the Olympics, jetpacks have generally been the realm of fiction... until now.

As Australian jet pilot, David Mayman vows to fulfil his childhood dream by creating a fully functional jetpack, more specifically a rocket belt, this is that tale. This insightful documentary follows Mayman's journey as he assembles a team of experts, pilots and enthusiasts to create the perfect device to make his dream come true. The passion behind Mayman is a treat to watch, especially how he virtually risks it all to become the world's next Rocketman.

Joining Mayman is Rocket Belt Engineer and Pilot Nelson Tyler and Rocket Belt Pilot Bill Suitor who will use all their knowledge and prowess to help Mayman fly over the Sydney Harbour. Was it possible? You'll just have to wait and see but amazingly, nothing like this has ever been done.

If you enjoy technological documentaries than Rocket Compulsion is the DVD for you but my only drawback for this documentary is that once you have see it, you've pretty much exhausted all opportunities to watch it again, unless you are a wannabe Rocketeer. You need to be in the moment to follow Mayman’s journey and man… what a journey it was. Add good video and audio and Rocket Compulsion is a gripping story from start to finish!

To the skies and beyond!
