World’s First Flying Bicycle

First Flying Bicycle

Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Yes, you’ll actually be able to say that phrase when you’re on the World’s First Flying Bicycle, because this super-cool ride can easily take to the air when the road runs out.

Designed to function as either a bicycle or a flying ultralight para-trike aircraft, this unique bike features a three-bladed carbon fiber propeller that lets the aircraft reach airspeeds up to 25 mph, and a para-wing deployed from an integrated backpack to provide lift. A full tank of gas provides a flying range of approximately 75 miles while flying at altitudes below 4,000 feet.

On the ground, with the para-wing tucked in the backpack, the 4-foot-wide frame allows for operating like a regular bicycle. It even folds down to fit in the trunk of a car.

You probably don’t expect the convenience of traveling by both land and air to be cheap, and you’d be right. The World’s First Flying Bicycle is available for $45,000 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
