The world’s first flying motorcycle.

JPA's Recreational SpeederTM represents the ultimate in personal transport. It is fully VTOL (vertical take off and landing) capable and can effectively take off from anywhere the size of a small car space. Originally intended only for Military, Government and Commercial clients JPA is also designing a version of the SpeederTM for the recreational market. It will be lighter than most 125cc motorcycles, fully stabilized and simple to fly.

Flying the Recreational SpeederTM will be just like riding a motorcycle but in the sky!

Being fully stabilized means that minimal pilot training will be required.

It will take off from practically anywhere and will fly at over 150 mph*

It will also fly at up to 15,000ft but we don’t expect many of our customers to need this!

We plan to build two versions of the Recreational SpeederTM: The Ultralight Version and the Experimental Category Version.

The Ultralight Version (UVS) will not require a pilot’s license to operate – all training will be provided by JPA or one of our authorized training centers. The Ultralight version will be limited to carrying 5 gallons of fuel and to 60 mph flying speed.

The Experimental Version (EVS) will require a private pilot’s licence to fly and will have no fuel or speed restrictions. As the owner/pilot of the EVS we will host you in our manufacturing facility and you will be part of the aircraft completion process. This will satisfy the FAA rules around Experimental aircraft production.

Full training will be provided at the JPA training facility in California where we remain the only FAA authorized jet-VTOL instructors in world

**Endurance is dependent on pilot weight and density altitude

The smallest, fastest and safest way to transport paramedics, medevac the injured, move life saving suppliers and insert/extract personnel. When time counts, the Speeder will save lives. It will also be possible to fly a de-rated version recreationally.

The Speeder can either be piloted or flown fully autonomously. It can transform from a pilot carrying craft to cargo craft in less than 5 minutes by sliding off the pilot seat and sliding on the cargo pod or litter basket.

When piloted, the craft is entirely self stabilized - the pilot can simply input a flight plan and the Speeder will fly the route both vertically and horizontally. The pilot is also able to manually fly the Speeder using power, pitch, roll and yaw and controls but at all times the craft’s control systems will ensure flight envelope protection.

We are currently test flying a 1/3rd scale prototype of the Speeder. We have modelled speed and endurance and these will confirmed through the flight testing program.

We will be producing two versions of the Speeder. A Recreational version and a Military/Industrial version. The aircraft will be very similar except for two elements a) total thrust - the recreational version producing approx 700 lbs of thrust and the Military/Industrial version 1,200 lbs and b) sophistication of flight planning and autonomous control systems.
