This under-$200,000 helicopter comes with 8 drone-style propellers, has a battery backup system in case the gasoline-powered generator fails, has a ballistic parachute, and allows travel up to 112km. It's basically a giant drone that can carry two people. I'd love to try it.

The time has come. After 78 years, the helicopter has been reinvented. SureFly is a personal helicopter/VTOL aircraft designed for safe and easy flight. With eight independent motors each driving a single carbon fiber propeller, a backup battery power system, and a ballistic parachute to safely land in the event of emergency, the SureFly provides unparalleled safety for a personal aircraft.

SureFly is changing the helicopter industry. Now is the time to discover the affordable, easy-to-pilot, safe answer to personal flight.
