Up to two times art. We managed to fly a hoverboard over the English Channel

hoverboard la manche

Franky Zapata got his way. He was once loud about him when the malice of fate prevented him from flying from France to England. This time without any problems he proved the potential lying in the hoverboard invented by him.

We've seen such inventions mainly in not-so-serious science-fiction movies. Today, they not only exist in the real world, but also work quite well. Recently, it was loud about Franky Zapata, who wanted to promote his hoverboard and decided to fly across it across the English Channel.

The trip did not work, but it was not exactly the vehicle itself. His pilot, Zapata himself, had a problem landing on the platform to refuel. The platform turned out to be a bit too small, making it too unstable - the aviator lost his balance during landing and fell into the water. Zapata, absolutely undeterred by the defeat, undertook the second attempt. Successfully.

Through the English Channel on a hoverboard. The invention of Franky Zapata is even interested in the army.

The specific name of the vehicle he used was Flyboard Air produced by the Z-Air company he founded. The flight lasted 22 minutes, during which Zapata defeated 35 kilometers. The maximum cruising speed it has reached is 170 km / h. Stoppage to complete the fuel was successful - this time the platform was bigger and more stable.


The purpose of this excuse was, of course, to promote this invention, which undoubtedly worked. The French armed forces have already publicly expressed interest in seeing the potential of the vehicle. It could be used not only for logistics, but even as an offensive vehicle for marines. They gave Z-Air a grant of EUR 1.3 million.

Flyboard Air is currently not available for free sale, the vehicle is still being tested and refined. Its final price is difficult to predict for now.
