Building a Jet Pack or rocket belt for one man VTOF using compressors and blow guns? Answered

I would like to build a Jet Pack to lift a man off the ground to fly . I will be using blow guns with an inlet pressure of 1800 PSI and a Flow SCFM 3624 . This should give a thrust upto about 288 Lbs for lift off .

what lightweight cold Air compressor could I use / Air boosters or Air Amplifiers etc ? .

Being connected to a very heavy Industrial compressor also considered , because I could still achieve take off, but is 3rd best answer .

Good luck, Getting enough power to weight for the pack to take off would be hard enough, but a man too....

You could do it, but it would cost LOTS
