How It Works

The M400 Skycar is the latest personal aircraft from Moller International, and limited numbers are expected to be sold in production within a couple of years for demonstrations and military sales (Figure 50-1; Plates 19 and 20). It is powered by Rotapower engines, which can burn a variety of liquid fuels. With regard to ground transportation, the Skycar can travel 30–35 miles per hour on hard surfaces such as pavement, clay, or grass. Ground travel capability is designed for short maneuvers between a storage facility and the actual takeoff location nearby.
