Jetpack Aviation is developing a prototype of the Speeder flying motorcycle equipped with jet engines, which will be able to develop speed of more than 240 km / h.
Futuristic vehicle will not seem like most of the existing
Initially, it is planned to place several jet engines in the central part of the design, but it may make it difficult to control the vehicle and will require the introduction of complex autonomous
Designers say that tens of millions of dollars will go to the design of the design and will need at least two years. So far, the startup created a prototype on 1: 3, which tests the flight stabilization system.
Jetpack Aviation has already started receiving pre-orders for Speeder. Those who wish to become one of the first owners need to pay $ 10 thousand. Just to get to the queue. At the same time, the total cost of the laminating motorcycle from the future will be $ 380 thousand.
The company plans to offer various Speeder models, including a military version, projects for emergency response services and a ultralight option, which can be managed without a pilot license. Engineers argue that although the finished product may differ from the existing concept, but will have a very similar design, size and shape.
Flight training will occupy about a week, as in the case of a reactive wound. However, for the development of management skills in urban conditions, more time will be required.
