— Jet Star's Flavor Text • Kirby: Air Ride

The Jet Star is an Air Ride Machine in Kirby Air Ride. It is known for being able to charge and boost as it glides. Off of ramps, it boosts immediately, reaching speeds surpassing the Formula Star. Its appearance, name, and mechanics are based on real-world jets.

The Jet Star has the best handling in the game, along with above-average acceleration and glide. However, on the ground, its top speed is fairly low, and it charges slowly. Its aerial abilities mitigate these flaws, and since ramps are a common feature on most courses, the Jet Star can easily keep up with faster machines.
