Personal Electric Plane with Vertical Takeoff Capabilities

Why bother with an electric car when you can get a personal aircraft for the same price?


Joby S2 VTOL may just be the perfect transporter you were looking for. It offers 2 passenger seats, combined with comfort and extra safety.

The plane uses 12-tilting electric propellers that are concealed within aerodynamic bullet-inspired casings once it hits cruising speed. The aircraft also has a V-shaped tail and forward-swept wings, along with 4 propellers on each wing. Those make landings and takeoffs less noisy. But they also double as security measures – in case one or more propellers fail during a flight.

The S2 has a top speed 200 mph, and a range of 200-miles.
