This is the two-seat vehicle that converts from a three-wheeled motorcycle to a gyrocopter in 10 minutes. A 230-hp, four-cylinder engine powers the craft to a maximum 112 mph in the air or on the road. When driven as a street-legal vehicle, the helicycle accelerates from 0-60 mph in under eight seconds, with a proprietary tilting system that provides the agility of a motorcycle. When travel by air is desired, the craftâ€™s propeller, rotor, and dual rudders deploy in 10 minutes. Though it resembles a helicopter, the gyrocopter flies like an ultra-light plane, its overhead rotors spinning to provide lift as a result of the forward motion of the vehicle. Designed to cruise at low altitudes (below 4,000′), it only requires a 540′ runway for takeoffs (just 100′ for landings). Its 27-gal. gas tank provides a 220-mile flight range (750 miles on the road), ideal for day trips from The Hamptons to Marthaâ€™s Vineyard.
