-- Checks whether or not the player has a jetpack, and gives or removes it from the player
function consoleJetPack ( thePlayer, commandName )
   if ( not doesPedHaveJetPack ( thePlayer ) ) then            -- if the player doesn't have a jetpack
      local status = givePedJetPack ( thePlayer )              -- give him one
      if ( not status ) then
         outputConsole ( "Failed to give jetpack.", thePlayer )   -- tell him if it failed
      local status = removePedJetPack ( thePlayer )            -- remove his jetpack
      if ( not status ) then
         outputConsole ( "Failed to remove jetpack.", thePlayer ) -- tell him if it failed

-- add the function above to handle the "jetpack" command
addCommandHandler ( "jetpack", consoleJetPack )

Example 2: This example provides a check to see if players have a jetpack when they enter a particular marker.

function onWarpMarkerHit ( thePlayer, matchingDimension )
   -- check whether the player has a jetpack and store it in the hasJetPack flag
   local hasJetPack = doesPedHaveJetPack ( thePlayer )
   if ( not hasJetPack ) then
      -- warp the player to their destination
      setElementPosition ( thePlayer, 1337, 1337, 50 )
      -- tell the player to remove their jetpack
      outputChatBox ( "You must remove your jetpack to use this marker!", thePlayer )

-- create a marker and add the function above to its onMarkerHit event
addEventHandler ( "onMarkerHit", createMarker(3180, 200, 27), onWarpMarkerHit )
