The Fly Citycopter is designed to ease commuting woes and tackle urban pollution
Creator Eduardo Galvani says the concept vehicle would be powered by electric motors
The superlight helicopter would fly two people at a maximum speed of 130 miles per hour
It’s happened to all of us. You wake up, have a bite, sip your coffee and then, full of energy and renewed optimism, you set off convinced that today will finally be your most productive day ever.
And then commuting happens. Delayed trains, crammed buses, gridlock traffic – they’re all there to drain out your energy and hold you back from that promotion you feel you righteously deserve.
But what if you could avoid crowded streets and ill-tempered drivers once and for all by simply taking to the skies in less than 60 seconds?
That’s the proposal put forward by Eduardo Galvani, a Brazilian visual artist and creator of the Fly Citycopter, an urban aerial vehicle concept designed to help commuters whizz around easier and in a more green way.
Galvani’s futuristic vision calls for a superlight personal helicopter that would be able to take off, fly and land while in autopilot mode. Made from carbon, aluminum and titanium, the Citycopter would use a combination of fans and electricity-powered motors to fly two people at a maximum speed of 130 miles per hour.
