Single Seat Helicopter Concept

by Simon. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

In the early 20th Century, Henry Ford realised a dream and brought the motor vehicle to the masses with the Model-T Ford. Skip forward a hundred years and personalised flight is the new arena. Igarashi Design has introduced a single seat helicopter with war-like looks. In a break away from Moller’s Skycar, the helicopter is more reminiscent of a BMW C1 motorcycle than a flying machine. You’ll need to take pilot training before flying one as only one person can sit and operate this helicopter.

Moller Skycar

The Moller Skycar is a prototype personal VTOL aircraft a “flying car” called a “volantor” by its inventor Paul Moller. Its proposed features would include 275 mph (442 km/h) cruise speed, 375 mph (603 km/h) maximum speed, eight redundant, low-emission Wankel engines for safety, residential garage size, fuel consumption like a big car, a parachute for the whole machine and road capability for short distances (to be driven to a vertiport). Although current plans call for use of alcohol fuel, cheap, lightweight fuel, such as liquid hydrogen, could be used as an alternative to gasoline, as in the Mazda RX-8 Hydrogen RE, although the lower energy density will limit range.

  • We need these things pumped to the gills with AI so they can fly themselves :) (even though that would take away half the fun!).
