However, since its first successful flight in February 2016, the Flyboard Air has evolved a lot. “He’s reliable now. My goal is to make the smallest flying machine in the world, accessible to everyone. The next model will have an autonomy doubled and will require only one hour of learning, because it will be self-stabilized. He will behave like a Segway. ”
According to Franky Zapata, these improvements are likely to be of interest to a wide audience, including miliaries. To hear him, the French and American armies would not be indifferent to the Flyboard Air.
Is it because the turbojets used are derived from aviation and missiles? Still, he claims to have signed a contract with the US military. As for civilian applications, they seem innumerable.
