Why has there never been a commercially successful flying motorcycle or car and there have been no new PAV (Personal Air Vehicle) designs since the 1950’s?  After the Ford Model T was first introduced in 1908, the automotive industry has been unwilling to abandon the flawed internal combustion engine.  Exactly 100 years later, Tesla developed the next revolutionary car design despite large obstacles in the automotive industry.

Similar to the automotive industry, PAV design has been impeded by an unwillingness to abandon existing propulsion systems.  Current designs simply attach existing propulsion systems to vehicles in different locations to alter the vector of propulsion.  This creates a modified plane or helicopter (not a PAV), which is no different than obsolete designs from the 1950’s.

The key factor necessary to create a PAV involves the neutralization of gravityExisting propulsion systems can overcome gravitational forces but are ineffective at neutralizing gravity and maintaining stability.

In 2015, Airborne Motors (parent company of Aviator Cycles) developed the first advanced propulsion system for PAVs.  In 2016, Airborne Motors developed the first Advanced Propulsion Personal Air Vehicle™ (AP-PAV™) with the ability to neutralize gravity and stabilize itself in the process.  In 2019, Airborne Motors will start production and distribution of the Chimara prototypes.

Your flying motorcycle/car has finally arrived.


Airborne Motors is the parent company of Aviator Cycles.  Airborne Motors developed and patented the advanced propulsion technology that will be used in all Aviator Cycles vehicles.  Aviator Cycles will further refine, develop, and test all propulsion systems originally developed by Airborne Motors in order to maximize their utility in flying motorcycles and ATVs.


  • Aerorunners will have the first useful new earthbound propulsion system in almost 80 years.
  • Aerorunner propulsion uses disruptive technology that will change the entire transportation system.
  • Aerorunners are the first advanced propulsion flying motorcycles/ATVs.
  • Aerorunner designs will be sleek, futuristic, and exciting because advanced propulsion technology allows unlimited design options.
  • Aerorunner technology will make these personal air vehicles (PAV’s) fast, reliable, energy efficient, and extremely safe.
  • Aerorunner propulsion will create the safest flying vehicles ever conceived with unequaled stability in all weather and wind conditions.
  • Aerorunners will have the first and only propulsion system that allows simulation of gravity neutralization.
  • Aerorunner propulsion allows dramatically improved energy efficiency and power resulting in greater flight time and speed.
  • Aerorunner technology can use the entire vehicle’s body to transmit energy for propulsion.


The Alternative Transportation Era (ATE) is the term used by Aviator Cycles/Airborne Motors to describe the dramatic changes in the transportation industry that will occur following the release of flying motorcycles, flying ATV’s, flying UTV’s, flying cars, flying taxis, and advanced drones.  Impact from the Alternative Transportation Era is rapidly approaching and may represent the next tech explosion.


It has already begun.

  • The transportation industry is massive, currently a $4.8 trillion dollar market.  It will continue to grow along with population growth.
  • In the past 8 years, there has been a dramatic increase in PAV (personal air vehicle) interest from consumers and large companies.
  • Many large companies are now developing prototypes including Google, Uber, BMW, Airbus, Boeing, Toyota, Porsche, and Geely.
  • There is a race to market the first flying taxi between Google, Airbus, and Uber.
  • Large companies are acquiring PAV start-ups at an increasing rate and are dedicating large resources toward the development of flying vehicles.
  • Boeing recently acquired Aurora Flight Sciences and is actively trying to develop a useful electric jet engine.
  • Airbus recently acquired Blade, a New York aviation startup, and has expanded into new flying technologies through its Silicone Valley Unit (A3).

The following table summarizes recent PAV (flying motorcycle/car) interest and activity of 6 large corporations:

All of these companies have invested large amounts of money and time into PAV designs that will all require advanced propulsion technology in order to be successful.

CB Insights (Trends Graph) – Software that analyzes millions of media articles to programmatically identify and understand the rate of adoption of emerging technologies and innovations.  Early 2016 marks the beginning of a strong trend that may herald the Alternative Transportation Era (ATE).


A culmination of events has resulted in a “perfect storm” of technology that is now catalyzing the Alternative Transportation Era.

  1. Consumer interest – reaching a critical level
  2. Manufacturing advances – increased manufacturing speed and efficiency, carbon fiber availability, lower costs
  3. Transportation laws – addressed by several large companies (Uber, Google)
  4. Software avionics – advanced with Drone technology
  5. Battery technology – advanced by Tesla, John Goodenough

The only missing piece is advanced propulsion technology.  Aviator Cycles and Airborne Motors will provide that critical technology, which will set off the Alternative Transportation Era.


Because Aviator Cycles is the only company with critical propulsion technology that every flying PAV, regardless of which company manufacturers it, will require.  This should allow Aviator Cycles to dominate market share in the flying motorcycle/ATV industry.  Our vehicles are backed by substantial Intellectual Property (42 patent claims issued and pending) related to critical propulsion technology and vehicle design.

Aviator Cycles has the perfect mix of revolutionary, disruptive technology that centers around an extremely profitable business model with high recurring revenues, including both hardware and software components.
