Jetpack Aviation (JPA) introduces the Speeder ™, its flying motorcycle, which is expected to be commercially available by 2023. A few years ago, the Speeder was designed as a flying vehicle for the military, government and commercial customers to save and save lives. now, it is presented as a recreational version for personal transport, with a fully VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) technology, capable of taking off effectively anywhere, in a space occupied by a small car.
Speeder: a bit like riding a motorcycle, but in the sky
There is no doubt that the Speeder will be an absolutely one-of-a-kind means of transport. Suffice it to say that a driving license will not be required to drive it, for the simple reason that such a license does not yet exist. Speeder pilot training will be provided directly by Jetpack Aviation or one of its authorized training centers.
Some technical data on Speeder
The flying bike will be able to carry up to 19 liters (five gallons) of fuel and reach flight speeds of up to 96 kilometers per hour (60 mph). the experimental version, on the other hand, will need a private pilot license to operate and clearly will have speed parameters (the maximum achievable one is about 240 kilometers per hour, or 150 mph) and capacity totally dependent on the testing needs.
Many possible applications
It is clear that Speeder's vocation is not just purely recreational, for personal transport. Quite the contrary: as you can imagine, its launch took into account first of all military needs. In development there are both versions for troop transport and for the transport of materials: in that case Speeder works as a drone (I don't know yet if autonomous or not) without a pilot and with a cargo section.
