The CityHawk Flying Car


In 2004, the development and 'proof of concept' flights of the "CityHawk"at Urban Aeronautics of Tel Aviv, Isreal were completed.

Flight Testing the CityHawk

The"CityHawk" can carry two people, take off and land vertically, and stay aloft for close to one hour. The maximum operating ceiling for the CityHawk is estimated at 8000 feet, with flight speeds of 80-90 knots.

The most significant feature of the CityHawk was its small footprint, merely 2.2 x 4.7 meters. This footprint is compatible with most standard urban parking spaces and garages.

Previously, in February 2003, Urban Aero had completed CityHawk's ground tests and began the flight testing with all wheels off the ground. The vehicle used an autostabilization system and was not tethered from above for these tests.

The tests being completed satisfactorily, the company subsequently began development of their X-Hawk and two other projects, one called the "Mule Fancraft"and the other called the "PANDA Fancraft"
