A radical new single-seat aircraft dubbed the FlyNano was unveiled at the Aero Friedrichshafen, Germany (April 13-16) byaviation consultant, flight designer and enthusiastic pilot Aki Suokas. You don’t even have to have a license to fly the single-seat fun flyer. It is made entirely of carbon fiber and weighs in at a mere 70kg. The FlyNano takes off and lands on water. The FlyNano falls under the weight of what is considered to be a plane so you don’t have to worry about applying for a flying license in most parts of the world. (Pics)
FlyNano comes in three basic variants – the electrically powered series E 200, a petrol-powered Series G 240 and the uprated racing model Series R 260/300. The innovative aircraft has a wingspan of nearly 5 meters, and the maximum takeoff weight is 200kg. The speed range is 70-140 km/h with a service ceiling of 3 km.
The most expensive FlyNano version costs a cool $39,000, with an optional purpose-built trailer and storage box that sells for $7,700. Deliveries for the FlyNano start three months from now.
