WOW: Dubai police to use flying motorbikes

A Russian-owned company plans to sell the hoverbikes for $150,000 each – but only to drivers who can prove the can handle them.

Police in Dubai have begun training on hoverbikes in the hope that they can help first responder units reach areas that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

The futuristic vehicles are intended to be in action by 2020 and are the latest extravagant expense by a force which already boasts a Ferrari and a Lamborghini among its patrol car fleet.

Hoversurf is also developing a number of other EVTOL vehicles, including a “drone taxi”, which it claims can fly a maximum distance of 300km (186 miles) at 250kmph (155mph) for just over an hour.
