Flight. Ever since the dawn of man, we’ve long envied birdkind and their ability to take to the skies. Luckily for you, we’ve arrived at the age of personal aircraft and taking flight is as easy as getting yourself Synergy.
For those of you not in the know, Synergy is a next generation ultra-light aircraft which weighs only 1650 lbs and has a wingspan of 32ft. Outfitted with your choice of jet, turboprop, or turbofan engines the aircraft is meant to be a solution to the unprofitability of regional travel. Synergy’s default engine has 200HP and is said to reach unprecedented speeds given the relatively low (for a plane, anyways) engine power. Curious about how high you can soar? Well, you’ll be able to reach a pretty impressive height of 25,000ft although Synergy’s own simulation shows that it can fly quite a bit higher than that.
Synergy is still in the prototype stage and there’s no word on commercial availability just yet. There’s also word of a built-it-yourself kit coming sometime in 2016 so stay tuned.
