The Jet-Air Transporter (also known as the Hoverbed) is an International Rescue Pod Vehicle that helps save people jumping off heights. Turbo fans on the Jet Air Transporter help people float. Anyone jumping who comes within 20 feet of the turbo fans will be saved, due to the Jet Air Transporter having a "catchment" area incorporated into its technology.

As far as is known, only one cutaway drawing of the Jet-Air Transporter exists. Illustrated by Graham Bleathman, it appeared in the Haynes Thunderbirds manual.
