而JPA立即的競爭者將會包含像Gravity Industries及其Zapata Racing那樣的致力于生產制造噴氣式挎包的公司。
Today, a high-tech startup in Vancouver, JetPack Aviation (known as JPA), announced that they have already raised $2 million in assets to develop and design flying motorcycles.
Compared with flying cars or jet flying backpacks, flying motorcycles will be a relatively strange term, but knowing the fans of the 007 film will immediately remind you of the coolness of LeBron James Bond safe driving motorcycle. Scenes.
The JPA solution is called the Recreational Speeder, which has a faster flying speed of 400 kilometers per hour (about 643 kilometers) and a flying height of up to 15,000 feet (about 4,600 meters).
Depending on the driver's weight and altitude, Speeder is able to air in midair for 10 to 22 minutes and can fully consider short-circuit traffic requirements.
In addition, the flying motorcycle is powered by four jet engines that use gasoline, diesel or Jet-A drives to accommodate manual and automatic control systems; it can also be like a flying car. It takes the same vertical take-off and landing, so it does not occupy the indoor space as much as the traditional motorcycle.
According to JPA's plan, they are preparing to manufacture two different types of flying motorcycles, one of which is an ultra-light version for commercial activities; the other is a trial version that will be used for defense, government departments and Customized new projects for customer needs.
The safe driving ultra-light version of the flying motorcycle can be immediately marketed in the market, with a speed of 60 kilometers (about 96 kilometers). Customers who drive safely do not need to obtain an aviation business license. They only need to have a training program presented by JPA or an authorized agent.
However, the experimental version must be operated by an aviation business license, and its speed will exceed 150 kilometers (241 kilometers).
At this stage, JPA has already built a 1/3-proportionate prototype that has already launched its first flight, and the program will be completed in full within 14 months. The market price of ultra-light version of the flying motorcycle will be around 380,000 US dollars (about RMB 2.66 million yuan).
If the new-listed flying motorcycles are successful in landing, they will not only satisfy everyone's adventures, but also innovate transportation methods to alleviate the crowding problems in big cities.
In fact, before this, JPA has already entered the aviation industry. They designed prototypes for two different types of jet-type bags and four-axle aircraft. The four-axle aircraft is an unmanned four-axle aircraft used to transport medical supplies and other raw materials to defense companies. .
In addition to JPA, there are many companies at this stage that will occupy the racetrack in the future air traffic industry.
Say goodbye to flying cars, such as Kai Chen, Airbus, passenger cars, Uber and so on, will carry out reasonable layout, have been close to burning or even burned.
And JPA's immediate competitors will include companies like Gravity Industries and its Zapata Racing that are dedicated to manufacturing jet bags.
The founder of Gravity Industries put on his invented jet flight suit to leap the Solent Strait in September 2019 and personally sent a letter to the Isle of Wight on the shore. He created the flight suit and even the Guinness Book of Records, known as the "faster jet flight suit."
And Zapata Racing is also amazing. Its founder leaped into the English Channel in August 2019 by stepping on its own invented hoverboard, becoming the first person in history to take a jet-driving suspension skateboard through the reborn English Channel. And its founder is still the world record world record for this project - the suspension of skateboarding air is 2,252 meters.
Therefore, apart from the bottleneck problem, JPA wants to excel and has to beat the competitors that will be encircling it.
