Aerobike / Gyrocopter

Aerobike
Aerobike

The concept of “Aerobike” is an economic addition to common helicopters. In cooperation between police and manufactures a new concept for commercial observation has been developed. The motorbike of the air combines ecological aspects as well as interrelations of useful power. Is power comes from an electric engine with lithium-polymer-batteries. Cost pressures in the private and commercial aviation forces big companies to develop easy, safe and cheap aircraft concepts. In addition to the helicopter, it is tested in the Police-Flying-Squadron. Other possible scenarios are land surveys or televised sporting events.
