Has the “flying car” finally gotten off the ground? Stewart Hamel recently introduced an all-terrain vehicle which can be transformed into light-sports aircraft in a matter of minutes. SkyRunner is the ultimate recreational vehicle combining off-road adventure with one of the safest forms of aviation. Using the latest ram-air parafoil wing technology, renowned for its safety due to the inherent stability, control and resistance to stalls, SkyRunner can reach air speeds of 40mph whilst restricted to a maximum regulated altitude of 10,000 feet.
SkyRunner allows pilots to see the world from a low vantage point that is not safely attainable by most fixed-wing airplanes. SkyRunner is the ultimate sightseeing recreational aircraft that offers you an exhilarating experience and true sense of adventure.
The SkyRunner is constructed from Chromoly seamless air-hardening heat-treated steel tubing bonded with carbon fiber composites to provide high levels of durability and performance. This lightweight, high-strength hybrid space frame protects you over the toughest of terrains, through the roughest of take-offs and landings.
With its aggressive, angular exterior and exposed tubular exoskeleton, SkyRunner is stylishly capable, without compromise. The body construction uses carbon fiber body panels and seamless air-hardened heat-treated steel tubing to achieve immense strength allied to lower weight penalties. The open architecture delivers a stripped back driving experience that leaps into the cockpit for an exhilarating ride expressively combining sporty handling with a balance that is surefooted and stable. SkyRunner’s inverted double wishbone suspension is the perfect partner to its inherent chassis control, which helps to handle either rough roads or sharp corners with equal poise and supple precision.
The tough all-terrain vehicle born to rule the trails and the open road, SkyRunner is built for those who want to take life head-on and make every day behind the wheel a thrilling experience and a new adventure.
Once airborne, SkyRunner has only two flight controls – left and right steering via handheld toggles and throttle pedal to climb or descend. This intuitive flight system makes SkyRunner one of the easiest and safest forms of flight to master and offers the kind of flying experience that is unmatched by other forms of aviation. A new world of adventure awaits!
