Hoverbike Crash

A failure in the ground avoidance systems may have caused a hoverbike pilot in Dubai to crash. The pilot fell from approximately 100 feet AGL. While the pilot was not injured, the hoverbike was a loss.

Most toy drones have ground avoidance systems that make them child-proof. Engineers are analyzing the crash data to make future flights safer.

Hovering aircraft are becoming more popular since the introduction of the Zapata Flyboard Air back 2017.

Police in Dubai are looking into the practical use of hoverbikes in their day to day operations.
