Abstract: We confirm recent discovery by Cao that in the vicinity of fast rotatingblack holes jets can be launched centrifugally by cold, magnetized disks evenfor nearly vertically shaped magnetic flux surfaces. Outflows produced undersuch extreme conditions are investigated via studying kinematics of testparticles in the force-free magnetosphere approximation. Implications of apossibility of magneto-centrifugal launching of very well collimated centraloutflows around the fast rotating black holes are discussed in the generalcontext of the jet formation scenarios in AGNs.
