Dubai Police Train On Hoverbikes

"We presented the S3 2019 to the Dubai Police at this years GITEX 2018 where it will now be integrated into their fleet of futuristic vehicles".

According to Brigadier Khaled Al-Razooqi, Director General of Dubai Police, the hoverbikes will be used to patrol the city and access "hard to reach" areas.

It takes two-and-a-half hours for the bikes to reach full charge, and each one will set Dubai back around $150,000.

Hoversurf - a Russian-owned company based in California - has gifted Dubai's police its first serial production of the electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles after a deal was signed a year ago.

The hoverbikes will be in action by 2020 with two crews already learning how to pilot them, CNN reported.

And it looks like he is following through on his claims as a video surfaced online last month of a Dubai police officer receiving training for on the craft.

Dubai police have exclusive rights to order as many units as they want. Hoversurf also has a bigger, two-seater flying vehicle it plans to showcase in "four to five months" and sell in 2020, said Segura-Conn.Robinson estimated more than 100 eVTOL or flying auto projects have already been announced. The vehicle can operate for 25 minutes when flown by a pilot and 40 minutes if used as a drone.

Hoversurf chief operating officer Joseph Segura-Conn said the company is standing by to supply as many vehicles as Dubai wants. "If they would like 30 or 40, we'll make it happen for them".

The Hoversurf, a cross between a drone and motorcycle, can seat a police officer or be controlled remotely.

Dubai police officers have begun training on flying motorbikes with four propellers to help them fight crime from the skies. However, the Hoverbike S3 is so unsafe that buyers have to be assessed to make sure they can handle it. The hoverbike meets Federal Aviation Administration guidelines in the USA, so you wouldn't need a pilot's license to fly.
