Hells Angels don't earn their wings, they build them. Whose got the time to take out all their eyebrow rings and metal-studded collars to get through airport security? Screw it! There's got to be some way to use all of that horsepower to fly. Voila.

isn't this like the exact same thing from one of the James Bond 007 movies?

These are currently being manufactured. I saw one in FL at Sun N' Fun this year. See the link.

my wifes dad has a hanglider with a powered trike similar to the picture...it will fly to people at around 40 mph...lots of fun....not sure about the parachute idea though. it seems like drag would be a major problem
