Neva Aerospace, a consortium of five companies, is set to debut their AirQuadOne personal transportation vehicle at the International Paris Airshow. Unlike other designs capable of transporting a human, the AirQuadOne is not just a scaled up multirotor. Instead, the AirQuadOne is actually two vehicles in one; it is a road capable electric ‘quad bike’, and it is also a ‘flying quad’ that flies at speeds of up to 50 mph.
A new flying quadbike is set to be presented at the upcoming International Paris Airshow.
The Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft, called the AirQuadOne, can reach altitudes of 3,000 feet (914 meters) and flight speeds of up to 50 miles per hour (80 kilometers per hour).
The ‘flying quad’ could be used as a means for personal transportation, as well as a replacement for cranes and helicopters or emergency cars.
The flying quad bike, developed by Neva Aerospace, is a fully-electrical vehicle that is expected to weight around 500 kilograms (1,102 pounds).
Its applications include extreme sports and leisure, parcel transportation, robotic maintenance, active defense and heavy lifting.
