SkyRunner vehicle is elevating the off-road industry to new
heights. The dual purpose, FAA approved off-road aircraft combines
the thrill of a side by side with the unparalleled freedom of an
Featuring a unique dual
engine powertrain, a trusted Polaris
ProStar 1000 engine powers the ground system while a Rotax 914 UL
light-sport aircraft engine enables SkyRunner to take flight. Using
the latest ram-air parafoil wing technology, renowned for its
safety due to inherent stability, control and resistance to stalls,
SkyRunner can reach air speeds of 40 mph for a distance of 120
nautical miles. When not in use, the wing conveniently folds snugly

inspired cockpit is like something out of a James Bond movie, but
this ultimate adventure vehicle isn't afraid to get dirty. Maxxis Bighorn tires supply
the traction and FOX Piggyback shocks are ready to tame any
off-road terrain. When you're ready to bug out, there's no need to
look for an asphalt runway. SkyRunner can take flight with just 450
feet of terra firma.
"We set out to build the
ultimate adventure vehicle but have since discovered it fills
tremendous gaps as a tool," said SkyRunner CEO Stewart Hamel.
"Designed initially as a toy, the market has translated SkyRunner
to be a low cost, high utility multimodal tool for ranchers, law
enforcement, boarder security, and even department of defense
agencies. With operating costs of approximately $50 an hour,
SkyRunner will take you places no pickup truck or UTV can go and at
a fraction of the cost of a helicopter."
In 2016, The Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded SkyRunner
the coveted Special Light-Sport Aircraft classification.
Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) are targeted to
recreational pilots who primarily fly for fun. LSA's are designed
to be affordable and easy to operate. SkyRunner is factory built
and a ready-to-fly aircraft. An off-road enthusiast can earn a
Sport Pilot's license in 8 days and just 12 hours of flight
training (weather permitting). Sport
pilots can legally and safely use 98 percent of US airspace without
having to talk to air traffic controllers (ATC). No Airports are required with SkyRunner.
SkyRunner retails for $139,000 and is available today for purchase from the factory direct. http://www.flyskyrunner.com/buy-now A network of SkyRunner Authorized Dealers will be in place in the south and southwest, within the year.
