A few decades ago, hearing about a flying bike would have only risen eyebrows and maybe make people laugh.
Nowadays, this doesn’t seem such an impossible thing anymore, and designers from all over the world are testing their imagination with all sorts of flying bike concepts.
When this will be possible, the traffic jams problem will be out of the question and people’s desire to fly will have one more manner to be satisfied. Moreover, the ecology will be safe with zero CO2 emissions.
Here are some awesome flying bike concepts, that we get to admire on paper for now:
The Flying Bike (FBike) – this concept combines the on road bike driving with its flying capacity. The flying vehicle is powered by four electric engines, each providing 10 KW.
The Battery Powered Flying Bicycle – this concept comes from Czech, just like the first one. However, this bike is already real and has been tested in Prague. She managed to fly for approximately five minutes, thanks to the six propellers.
Paravelo – this vehicle has para-engines and flexible wings, allowing it to take off from absolutely any kind of surface and can fly up to 4000 ft.
Aerofex Hover Bike – this Californian invention doesn’t exactly look like a bike. It can go high as 15 ft above the ground and touch speeds of 50 km/h.
