It seems that the dream of ordinary people to have for travel is not just personal transport, but air personal transport is already close to realization. In any case, one of the expected premieres of the current Paris auto show will be a flying quad bike. To have such a vehicle in your own garage, undoubtedly many will want.

At the upcoming Paris Air Show, the European consortium Neva Aerospace will present a new concept of personal VTOL (an aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing). This unit, tentatively called the AirQuadOne, is planned to become a fully electric vehicle that can climb to a maximum altitude of 3000 feet (914 m) and fly at a maximum speed of 80 km / h. One charge of its battery is enough for 20 - 30 minutes of flight.

The weight of the battery will be about 100 kg (with the total weight of the aircar - 500 kg).According to the developers, it will be possible to charge the battery at standard electric car charging stations. Also, the owner will be able to simply pull out the spent battery and notice it on a new, fully charged one.
It is planned to release both manned and unmanned versions of the AirQuadOne, each of which will have a payload of up to 100 kg. A half electric hybrid model may also appear, which will have a flight time of about one hour. All models will be equipped with a body made from recycled carbon fiber.

Neva Aerospace is currently developing rotary electric turbofans that will be used to create thrust. The company believes that the car will be classified as light aircraft in the United States and the European Union. One of the “chips” of the concept will be that its pilot will have ongoing support for controlling the movement during the flight, along with connecting to emergency satellite communications.
