There handheld lever to control the Flyboard Air, It allows the pilot to adjust thrust and elevation controls, and the ability turn in any direction, and remain everything is based on body balance just like a Segway. It’s easy to learn even a man without training can use this flying board. Just strap in boots on a small baseboard and you are ready.
It can carry a weight of 100 kg which more than enough to carry a common man. It can reach a maximum altitude of 150 meters at a maximum speed of 140 km/h, which gives you a flight time of 6 minutes. Flyboard air weights about 20kg plus fuel. Zapata Flyboard Air also allows non-pilots to legally fly in most of the country. However, When you are standing on the Flyboard Air, it will certainly leave you open, potentially vulnerable. For this potential danger to overcome Zapata Flyboard Air has taken some safety measures.

ZAPATA E-Z FLY
This is a recently upgraded Zapata flyboard With a few key upgrades Z with advanced modification of the Zapata Flyboard Air.
We have created an air vehicle much easier to fly, faster to train, and safer to operate than any other vertical takeoff aircraft in history. Its advanced stability systems and triple-redundant systems take all of the chaos and much of the risk out of the powered flight. – said Zapata flyboard air
But before all this happened, Zapata has plenty of challenges to overcome and here they are. However we can all predict a future where the Flyboard Air, Uber elevate, Airbus Vahana and Kittyhawk Flyer all to come to action, Where everything is flying and gliding near us.
