From the Jetsons animated TV series to the Star Wars movies, Sci-Fi has always teased us with the idea of a flying car. For most people, the concept sounds like great fun – who doesn’t want to be able to take a flying car for a spin?

Small scale flight offers benefits way beyond our entertainment, though. Benefits like search and rescue through bushland or on the water, being able to get to someone across a river without having to drive miles to the nearest bridge or even rounding up cattle on large farms.

The Star 8 Electric Manned Arial Vehicles (EMAV for short) programme is headed up by Kyxz Mendiola and Star 8 CEO, Jacob Maimon. Our first EMAV, the Sports Flyer, is a single-seat flyer that allows 20 minutes of flight time at an altitude of 100 m and a speed of up to 80 km/h.

Star 8 hasn’t stopped there.  Fully electric two-seater and four-seater models are in development.

We call our EMAV range “Future 8”, but the future has become reality now.
