Born to be airborne: Japanese firm aims to sell flying motorbikes by 2022

The Japan Times 

Technologies Inc. aims to release a mass-market flying motorcycle by 2022, Chief Executive Officer Shuhei Komatsu said. Technologies, which mainly develops small drones, hopes to sell the product, called a "hover bike," in emerging economies in Africa, the Middle East and Asia with poor road infrastructure. Many companies around the world are developing flying cars. Technologies is among those trying to enter the market. "We'll create a (flying) bike first, in order to get flying cars widely used in society eventually," Komatsu said.
