Engineered for Safety & Redundancy
- With engine out capability, the Flyboard Air can lose one engine and still continue the mission. If two engines go out, the Flyboard Air will make a controlled descent.
- Auto-hover mode allows the pilot to maintain a steady altitude without having to manage the throttle.
- Isolated turbines with improved cooling and lubrication increase jet engine reliability and lifetime.
- Embedded stabilization independent of flight controls.
- Status indications via heads-up display inform pilot of engine status, fuel levels, altitude and speed.
- Independent engine electronics means any possible electronic failure can only effect one engine at a time and the Flyboard Air can still safely fly.
- Independent engine fuel supplies.
- Triple redundant flight controls - two wired systems, plus one wireless backup system.
- Quick release boots means the pilot can quickly let go of the Flyboard Air in case of an emergency water landing.
