For just $30,000, you could own a one-man helicopter. That’s not the only personal aircraft you’ll find in this list. View more after the jump.

AirScooter II

The 300-pound AirScooter II is a “personal aircraft that can hover or fly at speeds up to 55 knots.” More information here.

It operates on two rotors in a fashion similar to most helicopters, but is apparently easier to fly. The flight controls live in the motorbike-style handlebars and there are no foot pedals whatsoever, meaning the craft could be piloted by those without the use of their legs

GEN H-4

If flying is your thing, check out the GEN H-4. Powered by 4 x 125cc 2-cylinder engines, the H-4 boasts “2 sets of coaxial, contra-rotating rotors, which eliminates the need for a tail rotor.” Two caveats: you have to build it yourself and it costs $30,000. Product page here.

The GEN H-4 can fly to a maximum altitude of 1000 meters at a top speed of 90 km/hr (59 mph) for up to 30 minutes

Battery Powered Plane

The world’s first battery-powered plane is powered by 160 AA “Oxyride” batteries. It “soared five meters (16 feet) above the ground at a private airport owned by Honda Motor Co.” during a test flight.

“This was officially the world’s first manned flight powered by dry-cell batteries, in the second test the plane soared two meters above ground and flew some 400 meters almost independently,” Zushi said

Super Sky Cycle

Larry Neal, a former test pilot, created this flying motorcycle “called the Super Sky Cycle ” — “a cross between a motorcycle and an autogyro”.

The flying bike goes as fast as 70 mph in the air and 60 mph on the road, and sells for around $25 grand!
