In the United States presented a prototype of an ultra-fast flying bike


The P2 Speeder looks like a regular sports bike, but with missing wheels. The model has a vertical takeoff function and an insane top speed of 805 km/h. Despite these figures, riding a bike will be extremely safe thanks to the presence of a patented on-board computer system capable of quickly balancing thrust in the event of an engine malfunction. The P2 Speeder is modular so it can be converted for autonomous or remote controlled flight.



Initially, the creators developed a flying motorcycle for the needs of the police, rescue services and the army, but now the manufacturer is not against wider use for his offspring. Thus, the new vehicle can be used for cargo transportation, extinguishing forest fires and eliminating the consequences of natural disasters. Mayman Aerospace says the bike is capable of hauling up to 450kg of cargo for at least 644km.

According to David Meyman, founder of Meyman Aerospace, in the future, the company plans to take on the development of new models of such vehicles with the introduction of hydrogen turbine and fan jet motors, turbofan engines and even technologies that allow supersonic flights.



The first remotely piloted test flights will take place in the 3rd quarter of this year, and pilot tests will take place in December.
