Greg Brown and Dave Fawcett are working on an design of a flying jet-propelled car. It is something between a business jet with a luxury automobile. GF7 concept is powered by electric motors while on the ground, then can extend wings and use a 3500-lb thrust jet engine to fly to 12,000 m and speeds of 885 km/h.
The GF7 design has a basic folding wing, and is propelled on the ground by an all-electric 50 kWh battery pack that is recharged by the jet engine during flight. The anticipated road performance is 160 km/h top speed with a 0-100 km/h time of 7-12 seconds.
Based on similar performance of electric vehicles they hope to reach 80-120 miles (129-193 km) of driving per charge.
