Hey Patrolman, Catch Me If You Can…That’s What I’m Talking About!

Hey Patrolman, catch me if you can!

My god, is n’t that really something!?  what are they going to do about that? From now on, NO traffic violation tickets…

Do you think that the Police Academy can come up with a competitive invention of a sort of flying Patrolmen or something? Jesus Christ!

The Sky car is ready to drive and fly!

Gilo Cardozo, a self-taught aviation engineer, inventor and founder of British-based Parajet has created a two-seat flying car. You see, I was just telling you in my previous post of  Jetman, cars manufacturers gotta come up with something!

And here we are, The Skycar is powered by:

  • Modified 1000cc
  • four cylinder
  • 140hp, ethanol burning
  • Yamaha R1 super bike engine with a lightweight automatic CVT(continuously variable transmission) gear-box.
  • Independent four wheel suspension
  • Rear wheel drive
  • Road acceleration, 0-60 mph in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 110 mph.

The driver unfolds a parafoil wing from the trunk (boot) and attaches it to the rear of the car, to convert it to fly mode. He then flips a switch to change the transmission from road mode, which powers the wheels, to flight mode, which powers the rear fan.

It takes about three minutes to Convert it  from “road mode” to “fly mode” and visa-versa. And this due to the flexible wing technology invented by Mike Campbell Jones, of Paramania Powergliders.

The fan’s thrust propels the car forward, providing lift for the wing as the car reaches a takeoff speed of 35 mph. Once airborne, foot pedals move cables attached to the parafoil to direct the flight path. Top air speed is 100 mphat altitudes of 2000 to 3000 feet. Maximum altitude is 15,000 ft. with a range of 180 miles. The Skycar is also equipped with an roof-mounted ballastic parachute for emergencies.

Potential buyers will require a powered parachute license, rather than a pilots license, to fly a Skycar and the British government has approved the vehicle as street legal.

So, I guess that the competition has already started! What do you think  a Jetman Suit or a flying car? or both? what else?
