There were several Republic serials with this character. "King of the Rocket Men" (1949) was the first; the most famous was probably the Commando Cody character. The serials are... not good.

"King of the Rocket Men": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXh9mehHhjQ
"Radar Men From The Moon": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DSEXqRkQ2M - the Moon looks surprisingly like Bronson Canyon...

 True enough, but you have to admit the controls for the Rocket pack were the most user friendly ever made...

 There is some very irreverent (and hilarious, to my admittedly eccentric tastes) treatment of the series in the Firesign Theater films Hot Shorts and J-Men Forever, which are probably still floating around on youtube.

Friends of ours did that back in the mid-1990s. Built a camper out of a Unimog (next gen, though) with radio cabin and went down the western end of Africa all the way down to South Africa and then went north again on the eastern side. They stopped by in Nairobi. I was a bit surprised, seeing that they had painted it in a sand tone and applied some brown stripes. They thought it looked neat, a bit zebra-ish. I said it looked like a straight-up military vehicle and that it might be unwise to go through northern Kenya, southern Sudan or Ethiopia painted that way. Awkward moment, then, "nah, we'll be fine". Worked out and they made it back to Germany without getting shot at, but I still think that was more luck than brains.  ;D
Cheers,
Moritz

For those who care to go digging, about a quarter-century ago (more or less), one of the smaller comics companies did an updated comic version of "King of the Rocket Men" that was pretty good and resolved a far bit of the nonsense.  I recommend it.
