Flying Motorbike

Flying Motorbike

An amateur inventor could hold the key to the dissolution of traffic jams across the world if his invention makes it to general production. Christopher Malloy has put his life savings into developing the first flying motorbike in his garage in Australia, and has cracked it. it is designed to travel up to ninety two miles and can go for about forty five minutes on a tank of fuel, which will crack the problem of sitting in the car on a short journey to the office in the morning. the bike is currently at prototype stage, but if produced we will expect to see it costing in the region of forty five thousand pounds, so not something that your average road user could afford. Although as with every new technology on the market, these things become cheaper as there is more demand for them.

The bike weighs two hundred and seventy kilogram’s, and has only been tested by when tethered to the ground to avoid it going too high and the inventor getting into trouble with air space regulations. It is designed to reach altitudes of ten thousand feet although this has not yet been tested. The hover bike has two parachutes attached to the frame, and the rider will also be encouraged to wear a parachute. The bike was designed for safety and is based on the idea of a Chinook helicopter, crossed with a normal bike.

‘To to make the bike turn left and right, all one needs to do is push the handle bars down on the side you wish to turn just like a bicycle. You could lean in the appropriate direction as you would on a motorbike but this isn’t proving to be very sensitive. Having previous experience in a helicopter or plane would be a great help. That said, this is a new way to fly and one would need to learn to ride the hover bike in much the same manner as a helicopter or riding a motorcycle. If you live in the USA or your country has similar civil aviation regulations, then the hover bike will be classed as a ‘ultralite’ which means you do not need a pilot’s license to fly it.’

If you are driving a normal car that doesn’t fly then you will find it far easier to get Car Insurance. Onlinee policies are readily available.
