The First Flying Bicycle - Hammacher Schlemmer


This is the world’s first bicycle that doubles as a flying ultralight para-trike aircraft. When the para-wing is deployed from an integrated backpack to provide lift, a powerful two-stroke gasoline engine powers the craft’s three-bladed carbon fiber propeller for an airspeed of 25 mph. Designed to cruise at low altitudes (below 4,000') with a range of approximately 75 miles from a full tank, it can operate from any suitable area of open space. On the ground, it operates like a conventional bicycle—at only 4' wide, it can ride in traffic when the para-wing is not deployed (check local ordinances). The bicycle and the frame that supports the engine and propeller assembly roll on 20" wheels and rubber tires. It also folds down to fit in the trunk of a car. High-grade aluminum construction. 8 1/2' L x 4' W x 5' H. (75 lbs.)
