For most people, a 15-minute drive to work sounds like a dream commute for a 10-mile journey. However, Czech locksmith Frantisek Hadrava, fancied a more high-flying mode of transport to get to work, so decided to build his own plane instead.
The ultra-light Vampira plane, which took two years to build, cuts his commute in half as he can now get to work for his 6am start in a speedy five to seven minutes, parking his personalised plane in the meadow opposite the factory where he works in Ckyne.
The plane cruises at a maximum of 91 miles per hour, with the propeller of the plane powered by a three-cylinder engine.
Hadrava said: “It takes me about 12 to 14 minutes by car. By plane, it would take around four to five minutes if I flew directly, but I take a bit of a detour so that I don’t disturb people early in the morning. So it takes about seven minutes.”
Could this revolutionise the way we travel to work?
