How much time does it take for you to get from your suburban, luxurious mansion to your office in downtown during peak hours? I know right. It felt like forever. Well, if you want to make getting stuck in the traffic a thing of the past, my suggestion is, go check if you office tower has a helipad. Next, clear out your lawn of everything and if possible, get it cemented. After you do those, head down to Composite FX and order yourself a Mosquito XE Single Seat Helicopter and your stuck-in-traffic ordeal will be history. OK. To be honest, I am not sure if you can do that because the XE line of Mosquito helis is actually marketed as “affordable, high performance machine for helicopter enthusiasts,” and therefore, I am not sure if it qualifies as a proper air transportation.
There are four models of the Mosquito on the XE platform, starting with the base XE through to a range-topping XET Experimental which is driven by a modified T62-T2A Solar Turbine engine kicking out 95 horses. Features include “exceptional” auto-rotation capabilities, strong tail rotor authority which helps boast its maneuverability, a 4X centripetal load-capable rotor head, 62 lb. monocoque fuselage, +/- 6G airframe stress tested, vacuum formed canopy (hey, just like R/C helicopters!), and as the company name hinted, 100 percent composite airframe construction. Composite FX XE line also touts easy maintenance, abundance of spare parts, low cost operation per hour (very important!) and TBO (Time Between Overhaul) cost of $10 per hour at 500 hours.
If you are not as adventurous as some who made their own flying machines but still have the strong desire to fly, this is probably it. Unless, you resides in Dubai, then in that case, you can choose to trust your life to autonomous man-size drones to take you around the city.
