If you thought flying cars only existed in your boyhood dreams and fantasies, think again, for the day is not far when you will be actually riding and/or flying the world’s first fuel-electric hybrid Air car. Aircraft designer Michael Moshier and test pilot Robert Bulaga – the guys responsible for the development of Solo Trek/Springtail Exoskeleton Flying Vehicle have just announced plans to develop the hybrid Air Car by forming a new company. If you look at the flying car a little closely, you will begin to see that it bears a striking resemblance to your Parrot AR Drone. Gone are the days when playing with baller toys were the only means to satisfy your boyhood dreams. The time has now come to dream the impossible and watch it become possible.

If flying gets you excited, you might be interested to know of the newest addition to the flying range – The Cavalon Gyrocopter that was unveiled this week at Aero Friedrichshafen. For those of us who belong to the cave generation, a gyrocopter is midway between a plane and a helicopter/chopper. It can fly more slowly than a plane and faster than a chopper but it cannot hover. Further, it will not stall. The rotorblades are powered by air and hence it does not need a tail rotor. Basically, the gryrocopter is a flying vehicle that is helicopter of sorts to look at but with a different layout that gives it stability at low speeds. It is cheaper than a plane and a helicopter, takes off and lands on a much smaller base and uses a power pusher propeller in addition to an unpowered main rotor.

If you’re like me, then you saw the Rocketeer when you were a kid & have dreamed of owning your own rocket pack ever since.
Now, there’s been a lot of attempts to make a working personal jet pack that will allow the user to take off, fly & land without exploding into lots of tiny bits, or going haywire & flying you straight into a giant billboard. Few of them, however, have been successful & so far none have been commercially available.
Tecnologia Aeroespacial Mexicana are manufacturing the Rocket Belt: the world’s first custom designed jet pack that comes with a distillation machine so that you can produce your own rocket fuel.
As the first legal vehicle that can be flown and driven, the Parajet Skycar will thrill you with a top speed of 140mph and 0-60mph excelleration in 4.2 seconds. The car features dynamic handling thanks to minimum weight which leads to peak performance. This Parajet Skycar is perfect for off-roading with some serious tires and suspension that provides great handling on dunes and dirt. When the flying car takes to the air it is suspended by ram-air wings and can take off from a distance as short as 200m. It will run you a little more than $82,000.
