Eurocopter X3 Hybrid Helicopter breaks 300MPH

for all intents and purposes, helicopters are never designed for speed, but for hovering which allows them to perform what traditional fixed wing crafts can’t and go to places where other crafts can’t. as such they have been doing pretty damn well in areas such as transportation of crews to and from oil rigs and

Aeryon SkyRanger Small Unmanned Aerial System

we don’t always tell you how to spend your hard earned dough (ok, maybe we did most of the time). there are times where we just want to share some interesting finds, such as this cute little guy known as the Aeryon SkyRanger sUAS. it is highly portable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that falls under the small

Terrafugia TF-X Vertical Take-Off Flying Car

the fantasy of flying car grips us. we fall prey to this desire to get our cars into the sky, thanks to the frustration serves up by constant gridlock and the steady bombardment of this fantasy by sci-fi movies. as flying car inches towards reality, we are also quick to realize something: do we really have the luxury of runway

Eurocopter EC145 BRABUS Limited Edition Livery

we probably won’t get there and so, we will never understand why should one pimp up their personal chopper like we did to our down-to-earth four-wheelers. if you happen to spend more time being zipping through the sky more than rolling on solid ground, then we suppose it’s only a logical progression that you might

Italian coach builder Pininfarina is no stranger to the world of automotive and its name is often synonymous with the epitome of luxury and design excellence. so you will expect the same refinement whatever the Italian automotive designer have their hands on. one such example is the…

Aerofex Hoverbike

well, what do you know? we could be zooming across a variety of terrains with ease on a hovering piece of machine in a not-too-distance future. the concept of a personal air transport powered by dual ducted rotor, layout in fashion similar to a motorbike is not new and apparently such a seemingly crazy (but exciting, no doubt) idea was born as early as…

Lisa Airplanes AKOYA

supply and demand is a beautiful thing, and it is because of this correlation that we started to see small firms sprouting up and turning out light personal air transports that doesn’t cost an arm or a leg. supply comes from brilliant engineers and entrepreneurs with dare-to-do attitude, developing better but cheaper aircraft to enable near-regular folks to take…
