The Maverick’s ride

The UDX Airwolf hoverbike is no ordinary quadcopter. We’re talking about a 430-hp eVTOL motorcycle-esque vehicle that seats two and features “hummingbird-like” agility. It has four fan units that can tilt independently. With a weight of 639 pounds, the Airwolf promises a 0-60 mph acceleration in just three seconds and a blistering top speed of 142 mph.

THE BEST TRAVEL GEAR FOR 2024

The price of admission

To fly the UDX Airwolf, you’ll need a sports pilot license in the U.S., which requires 20 hours of flight training (five of which can be solo) and passing a couple of tests. While not as expensive as a private pilot license, the real barrier to entry is the Airwolf’s price tag of $350,000, a sum that only the well-heeled can afford.

We reached out to UDX, and the company’s CEO, Jiri Madeja, tells us, “Lately, we’ve seen a huge spike in excitement around our Airwolf and other VTOLs, and it’s honestly so rewarding. It’s a dream come true for us to finally have the technology to make these machines a reality. Big thanks to CyberGuy, for getting the word out.”

BEST TRAVEL ADAPTERS OF 2024

The reality check

While the dream is tantalizing, the reality is still in development. UDX has built working prototypes at small and quarter-scale, incorporating the thrust-vectoring propulsion system. These prototypes demonstrate reasonable stability and agility in flight testing, but a production-ready model is still a few years off.

However, with battery and electric motor technology advancing rapidly, these compact personal eVTOLs are no longer just retro-futurist dreams; they’re already here, albeit expensive and in small numbers. Some are pitched as fun machines while others aspire to be practical transport options for commuting, search and rescue operations, or quick responses to accidents.

For now, the Airwolf offers a tantalizing glimpse into a future where we can unleash our inner mavericks and take to the skies with the freedom and exhilaration of a fighter pilot.
