Bob first became interested in pulsejets at the age of 17
after seeing a schematic of the German V-1 pulsejet in an
encyclopedia. Fast forward to 1997.
While competing in a skydiving tracking competition, Bob's
friend, northwest champion Brian Fairhurst, was pulling
away and Bob thought to himself that he needed a jet
engine strapped to his chest to keep up with this guy! With
that said, Bob went to his then cabinet shop and went to
work. After about a month of tedious work, Bob emerged
with a working 50 lb. thrust prototype, and after few
non-running freefalls to check stability, decided that it
posed too high of risk to both the pilot and the aircraft he
was jumping out of and decided to discontinue testing.
After conquering the daunting task of making a pulsejet
engine that worked, Bob was intrigued and hooked. After
dozens of engines and thousands of tests, Bob now makes
the most powerful and dependable pulsejets in the world.
Bob's pulsejets are featured on some of the most elaborate
show cars, motorcycles, and bikes ever built, and he has
become one of the most prolific pulse jet designers in the
world. What's next? Stay tuned because on the drawing
board are plans for dragbikes, dragsters, twin jet hydrofoils,
and a pulsejet powered 40 ft. tall 4 engine 5,000 lb. thrust
rocket from which Bob will eject and skydive from 25,000
