Through a partnership between defence contractor Advanced Tactics and America’s top two-seat helicopter company, Rotor X Aircraft, comes the new standard in recreation for those with an appetite for excitement and adventure. With delivery beginning in September of 2023 and a price tag of under $100,000, the new Dragon Personal Air Vehicle is positioned to change the concept of outdoor recreation.
The all-new DRAGON Personal Air Vehicle is the safest and easiest to fly personal air vehicle in the world. With speeds of over 60 mph and a passenger weight of up to 250 lbs, this fully-electric ultralight eVTOL aircraft is nothing short of a thrill. Currently, the flight time is around 20 minutes, however, due to the modular design of the aircraft, you will be able to easily swap the batteries when the charge gets low.
The DRAGON Personal Air Vehicle comes with safety features and a level of performance that is unmatched by other emerging single seat eVTOLs. Some of the safety features include a ballistic parachute, sensor-driven auto takeoff and landing system, reinforced aluminium landing gear, and a co-axial propeller configuration which means that if one motor stops, the others will compensate allowing a safe landing.
Under the FAA’s part 103 regulation, the DRAGON Personal Air Vehicle is classified as an Ultralight eVTOL Aircraft which means one does not need a pilot’s licence to fly it.
