FlyNano's personal seaplane takes its first flight.
There are plenty of neat seaplanes and personal aircraft out there, but the biggest problem with all of them has to do with the fact that they cost a whole lot of money. Hoping to make personal flight more wallet-friendly, the folks over at FlyNano have been working on a small, ultra lightweight and most important cheap aircraft. In addition to its wide availability, the plane will also let you fly without a pilot's license.
The small aircraft is estimated to cost approximately $34,000, which isn't too bad when compared to the price tags of other personal airplanes. The carbon fiber flyer features a small electric engine that can hit speeds of up to 80 mph at 9,800 feet high with a range of 40 miles. The company promises it will have a final design and delivery date ready by the end of next year.
