Former AHS Tech Director John M. Davis in LA Times article

Former AHS Technical Director John M. Davis commented on the Aerofex ducted-fan "hover bike" for an article in the LA Times on Tuesday. "It is a very fascinating vehicle to look at and watch operate," said Mr. Davis to the Times, "but can it find a really unique mission that warrants its full development?"

A video of the vehicle in operation is available on the LA Times website. Technical aspects of the ducted-fan control system for this vehicle were presented at the AHS Future Vertical Lift Aircraft Design Conference, which was held January 18-20, 2012, in San Francisco, California.
