Are you ready to live out your wildest George Jetson fantasies? Because personal jetpacks may finally be here.

New Zealand-based jetpack manufacturer Martin Aircraft Company will officially list on the Australian Stock Exchange Tuesday morning, according to The Guardian.

The company plans to start selling the jetpacks, controlled by a remote control, in 2017. Its first customers are expected to be rescue organizations, but Martin thinks eventually recreational users will be interested in the product as well.

The retail price will be around $200,000 to start, with prices expected to fall to around $150,000 wants individual users start buying the product.
