Jet air crafts

A paper jet is a variation on the paper airplane. It looks a bit sleeker and more detailed than a traditional paper plane. You can fold several different kinds of paper jets with varying degrees of difficulty. To learn how to fold two fairly simple paper jets, grab some computer paper get ready to begin.

Personal watercraft are often referred by the trademarked brand names Jet Ski (referring to personal watercraft manufactured by Kawasaki ), WaveRunner , or Sea-Doo .

The United States Coast Guard defines a personal watercraft, amongst other criteria, as a jet-drive boat, less than 13 feet (4 m) in length, in order to exclude from that definition more conventional-sized jet-boats. [1] There is a wide variety of " jetboats " many of which exceed 30–40 feet (9–12 m) in length.

Stand-up PWCs were first produced by the Japanese company Kawasaki (under the Jet Ski brand) in 1972, [10] and appeared on the US market in 1973. These were mass-produced boats to be used by only one rider. While they are still produced today, the more popular design, is the sit down variety of PWC. These sit down runabouts have been produced by Kawasaki (Jetski), Bombardier ( Sea-Doo ), Yamaha ( WaveRunner ), Honda (AquaTrax), Polaris (Sealion) and Arctic Cat (Tigershark). As of 2010, the major manufacturers of PWCs were Kawasaki, Bombardier and Yamaha. Both Yamaha and Kawasaki continue to sell stand-up models but it is a small percentage of the overall market.
