Personal Aerial Vehicle (PAV) are starting to be launched in the UK. For around £25,000 or $33,000 you can beat the traffic.

Since these are basic big drones with a seat fitted, it's still unclear if you need a flying licence.

The first one is the BlackFly: all electric with a 40 mile range. 8 hour charging time seems a bit long too.



PAV's may solve city centre parking problems. Roof top parking and charging maybe the next big thing [shrug65465.gif]

I can't really see me parking this at lidl. There nowhere to put your shopping :think:

40 mile range? I won't get to Tesco and back if that's all they have to offer.
BTW. If I left it hovering over a parking space, would I have to pay?

Yes cos its call a parking space, you're paying for the space :snooty:

But..... if you left it hovering over bus stop or park, then no :thumbsup:

No! 'Cos I'd pay to park, but I hover.

Well! Hearing this morning that they propose to close many streets in East London to all traffic, for reasons of easing polution, one can only imagine the rules for us poor ordinary people should we go airborne.

FC is right.They will never take off.....because they won't let us.

People said the same about dishwashers and electric cycles :rolleyes:

Once prices start to drop and the "free trade" agreement with the Americans begins.... who knows [shrug65465.gif]
