The 'Workhorse Surefly' is a personal commuter helicopter that hopes to elevate trips to work.

Designed for safe and easy flights, this two-seater urban helicopter is a great alternative to on-the-ground transportation. This personal commuter helicopter has a running time of up to one hour and is powered by a gasoline engine with a battery-powered backup. The aircraft also features a ballistic parachute for emergencies, making it one of the safest vehicles of its kind. Eight independent motors power a carbon fiber propeller. The propellers can safely fold to make the vehicle more compact for storage.

Now that society has the technological capabilities for a functional flying car, a variety of companies are working to deliver real-world solutions to city traffic congestion. By building a small, urban-friendly flying vehicle, Workhorse seeks to revolutionize the way people commute.
