The Airscooter II, something for the Bond in all of us.

April 18, 2005

I’m a big fan of personal aircraft, especially those ones that you don’t need to purchase a license for!

The Airscooter II is a VTOL craft that utilises a twin rotor design. It is an ultralight weight class, hence no need for a license in the US. It uses a 4-stroke engine that can take you across the countryside at speeds of 55 knots with 2 hour flight time. Looks to be in the range of around US$50K according to their site.

The feature I love the most are the "extremely durable pneumatic floats" that allow you to land and take off from water as well as land!

James Bond look out!
