Czech company UDX is developing a flying air bike called Airwolf.

The company is currently testing a scaled prototype of the tandem two-seat eVTOL.

The air bike has four individually tilting fan propulsions.

“Our mission is to make flight accessible to everybody,” says UDX CEO and cofounder Jiri Madeja.

Imagine leaving for work and ditching your car for the UDX Airwolf air bike to ignore all traffic.

Soon you will be flying at 142 mph (230 km/h).

This is the second company trying to make an air bike a reality.

Mayman Aerospace is a California-based company, that was working on the Razor Flying Motorbike.

But they have recently put a pause on the program to concentrate on large, fast military drones.

On the other hand, UDX has been testing its air bike prototypes in a relevant environment.

However, just like many other eVTOLs, the Airwolf has years of development ahead, before it can be released to the public.

The company is also working towards a full-scale working prototype.

According to the CEO, interested customers can sign up for a test flight, but no dates have been announced yet.

Weighing a hefty 639 lb (230 kg), the Airwolf air bike can go 0 to 60mph (96 km/h) in three seconds with a 142 mph (229 km/h) top speed.

It also has enough wing surface for efficient cruise flight and agile movement from a hover.

However, all that speed and weight comes at the cost of a meager 25-minute flight time and 41-mile (66-km) range.

The air bike comes with a price tag of $375,000. So only people with deep pockets can afford such a vehicle.

And to fly the UDX Airwolf in the US, you’ll need to have a sports pilot license.
