Our Take on the Airspeeder AO

The Airspeeder AO is a great concept - but little more than that at this point in time.From the press release:

The SKYLYS Aircraft AO* is a small passenger vehicle which is being designed for efficient transportation in urban environments. A Dec. 7, 2017 press release states that “SKYLYS AIRCRAFT® is an American company create in collaboration with 5 investors from Dubai in order to develop an Air Speeder and win the insane bet to present a 100% operational prototype in 2018 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).”
