A California-based company is planning to launch a flying bike in 2017.

The company says the Aero-X hoverbike is designed to carry two people up to a height of 10 feet and reach speeds up to 45 m/h.


It also comes with the hefty price tag of $85,000.

In place of wheels, the bike will have carbon-fiber rotors that will allow the bike to take off and land vertically without the need for a runway.


Drivers will only need about a weekend of training to be able to fly the bike easily, the company claims.

The bike is expected to run for about 75 minutes on a full tank of fuel, the report said.
