The English Company XploreAir with KickStarter, where they have collected more than 50,000₤, have created a flying bicycle that has been called Paravelo. At the moment, this gadget is test process, but it looks like they are working hard on it. The brand secures that with this bike the owner can “realize different adventures”, and they are searching for a bike that can glide at least. They have tested it with a pilot, the most difficult thing to achieve.
The frame of this bicycle is very similar from a folding bike, mainly from the Brompton’s bikes, it has a gyroscopic handlebars and is very light. For the use of the Paravelo, the brand has created a trailer load held by solid hose clamp to the seat’s post. On the trailer load it has a big bag with a parachute and a ceiling fan to lift the fly.
The company has said that “the specifications of the use of the Paravelo are so easy, and the experience is incomparable”. The gadget offers 3 hours of fly and a maximum speed of 25 mph with a 249 cc engine. The brand has said that is not needed a license to drive this vehicle, so is available to all the people that want to use it.
This is all the information that has been revealed. At the moment, they are testing the bike and trying to improve it. XploreAir has not fixed a date to launch it, maybe for not putting more pressure to itself and make the best flying bike they can. The price has not been said. We have to wait until this flying bicycle is available to buy by everybody, but they have presented their plan, and they are working hard trying to launch it as soon as possible, but maybe we have to wait some years to have a flying bike in our garage.
