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.
