SEAL BEACH (CBS) — An Orange County man is flying using his own jet-pack device.

No, it’s not just a dream, Bob Wilson and his friends are flying around Huntington Harbor.

Wilson, a Seal Beach handyman, decided to build his own flying contraption when he realized another jet-pack device cost $100,000.

After many trials and errors, Wilson came up with his water-powered device, which is hooked up to a jet ski on the water below.

People have soared up to 30-feet high with the jet pack, but Wilson warns flyers not to go any higher than they are willing to fall.
