Yves Rossy from Switzerland developed wings which allow him to fly - spectacularly! (mainly because of 4 attached model-engines) With these, he can fly at over 200km/hr and conquer mountain summits. "During the flight, Yves's body becomes the likes of a bird and, other than a gas handle, Yves does not ride his wings but truly flies them, using various light body movements that he has learned to handle with perfection. These body movements are equal to those that birds use to fly..."

PALV: Personal Air & Land Vehicle

The PALV (Personal Air and Land Vehicle) is a concept for a flying car, which utilizes autogyro flying technology. In fact, the PALV is a cross-breed between a car, a motorcycle and a gyrocopter, and is designed to eliminate limitations in either flying or driving mode. The vehicle is under development by the Dutch entrepreneur John Bakker in close cooperation with the Dutch company Spark Design Engineering and other partners.
The design of the PALV is based on the three-wheeled road-going production vehicle Carver One from the Dutch company Carver Europe. The Carver One has a fully enclosed cabin with two seats placed behind one another. The rear wheels are incorporated into one unit together with the engine and gearbox. The cabin is attached to the rear unit by a mechanical-hydraulic system. The Dynamic Vehicle Control (DVC) automatically tilts the cabin, depending on the steering input, speed and acceleration of the vehicle, much like a motorcycle.

The same system and general cabin layout is used for the PALV. On the road, the PALV can reach speeds of 200 kilometres per hour (125 mph).

For flying mode, the vehicle is fitted with a single foldable rotor on top of the cabin, a single foldable push propeller at the rear of the cabin and a foldable tail-wing section. By folding out the rotor blades, propeller and tail-wing section, the PALV is able to take to the skies with autogyro flying technology.
orward speed is produced by the rear propeller, which is driven by the same engine that drives the wheels in road-mode. Within a takeoff run of just 50 metres (165 ft), the PALV is lifted into the air by the foldable rotor on top of the cabin. This rotor auto-rotates due to the forward speed and generates lift. Because of the slower auto-rotation, as well as the absence of a tail rotor, the PALV is much quieter than a helicopter.
The PALV is designed to fly under the 1,500 metre (4,000 ft) floor of commercial air space. This makes it possible to take off at any time, without a flight plan, from the nearest airfield or helipad. Much like a helicopter, the PALV has a Very Short Take Off and Vertical Landing (VSTOVL) capability, enabling it to land almost vertically within a distance of just 5 metres (16 ft). The autogyro technology furthermore enables a safe landing even when the engine fails, as the vehicle descends vertically instead of nose-diving.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:
DRIVE SYSTEM: Petrol engine
FUEL ECONOMY
3.33 l/100 km (70 mpg US) @ 100 km/h (62 mph)
ROAD ACCELERATION 0 – 100 KM/H (60 MPH): 5 sec.
MAXIMUM ROAD SPEED: 200 km/h (125 mph)
MINIMUM TAKEOFF RUN: 50 m (165 ft)
MINIMUM LANDING DISTANCE: 5 m (16 ft)
MAXIMUM AIR SPEED: 195 km/h (120 mph)
