Meet the SkyCruiser – the latest incredible example of how cutting-edge technology is taking mundane transportation to a unique level.
In this case, technology has merged with childhood fantasies to create something so intriguing, it’s stirred the imaginations of children and adults alike.
On the face of it, U.S. engineers have designed a new car.
But not just any old car.
This one triples as the ultimate “hybrid” vehicle – a remarkable three-in-one creation that drives like a car, flies in the air, but takes off like a helicopter.
Yes… you read that right…

The technological masterpiece is the work of Arizona-based company, Krossblade Aerospace Systems.
Now, with all this power packed into one machine, you may think it’s awfully loud. But quite the opposite, actually.
It uses a 320-horsepower electric motor, which helps it take off quietly. At this point, the SkyCruiser transforms into airplane mode. Once the hybrid reaches flying altitude, the rotors disengage and fold back in. Its rear-mounted propellers then get it to its destination.
What distinguishes SkyCruiser from the average helicopter is its speed. It can fly up to 313 mph, making it much faster (and more fuel efficient) than your everyday ‘copter. Coupled with its speed, its longevity makes for an extraordinary combo – flying about 1,000 miles (and carrying cargo, too).
So after you’ve enjoyed your sightseeing from up on high, prepare for a very sci-fi-like transformation on the way down. After landing, the five-seater plane turns into a road vehicle…
Yep… just another day flying in the air and riding around town!
At this point, the design is merely a concept. But it’s hard not to marvel at the fascinating futuristic technology and entrepreneurial vision that makes the SkyCruiser possible. There’s no delivery date yet for the concept, but maybe one day, that all-in-one vehicle will edge closer to reality. It sure would make flying much easier.
