For anyone who was ever bored while riding a bicycle and wished to just take off into the air, three Czech companies have answered your prayers.
On Wednesday, June 12, 2013, representatives from three companies, and members of the media, gathered in an exhibition hall in Prague for a presentation of a new prototype: a “flying bicycle.” The bicycle, which looks like a heavy mountain bicycle with fan propellers, took off carrying a dummy and completed a five-minute controlled flight. The bicycle has two propellers on its sides, one on the front and one on the back. All of the propellers are operated by batteries.
According to Milan Duchek, technical director of Duratec, a Czech bicycle frame-maker, the prototype is nowhere near ready for commercial use. Larger batteries and many more tests are needed before the companies can test the flying contraption with a live person.
