The automobile has been around for well over 100 years and it has changed humanity. Unfortunately there will always be too many cars and our massive infrastructure projects will never keep up with demand for more space on the road.
We desperately need a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft that people can afford! What that means is that you can fly to work by taking off and landing vertically for the cost of your mid-range luxury sedan.
The GUMDROP is the solution. Henry Ford revolutionized the auto industry by creating a car that was affordable for the masses. The GUMDROP will revolutionize how we travel by making vertical takeoff and landing affordable and safe for you and me.
The GUMDROP is the first aircraft that you can pull out of your regular sized garage, take off in your driveway and fly to work! It is only 7.5′ in diameter and under 7′ tall. We designed the GUMDROP so the propellers are hidden inside a duct so it not only looks safer than a helicopter but it is safer inside and out.
The GUMDROP is an ultralight aircraft and is the NEW WAY to FLY that is easier, affordable, safe, and loads of FUN! To fly over populated areas you will need to get your Light Sport Pilot’s License. To do that, all you need is your drivers license, plus 20 hours of flight instruction and you to can be a Light Sport Aircraft Pilot and fly the GUMDROP where ever you would like to go!
The GUMDROP comes complete in kit form. With our “Build Assistance Program”, you will be on your way to being an aircraft owner and pilot. So, climb aboard, take the controls, and launch your new adventures in recreational aviation today!
At this time we are actively looking for a sponsor to build the first prototype. We need $27K to build the first one. If you know of anyone interested please call or email Mark Rumsey, CEO, at 951-491-9002 firstname.lastname@example.org.
