Dubia Police training with flying motorbikes.
Police in Dubai are training to use flying motorbikes as part of a deal with a California aerospace startup. Dubai police say the vehicles may be deployed as soon as 2020 to help first-responder units in areas that may be harder to reach by car. The vehicles, created by Hoversurf, can travel up to 60 mph.
A year after California-based startup Hoversurf showcased its hoverbike at tech expo GITEX in the white and green livery of the Dubai Police, the company has returned with a new model and evidence its electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicle might be, well, taking off.
