Cygnet amphibious trike system is amazing for it gives wings to your dreams, it rolls when you want and floats as as per your wish. The trike system is FAA certified as the N-numbered Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) and is available in two versions: amphibious trike system for two riders and a single place version. The latter doesn’t require a license for operation.
On the other, the trike is available in two power options as well that includes a 65 hp Rotax 582 or 80 hp Rotax 912 engine. The trike was launched nine years ago and the latest version (2010) features a fairing and windshield, custom instrument panel, custom seat cushions, saddle bags, rear suspension for extreme terrain and rough landings, and a stronger front spreader bar for maximum durability and strength.
The unique trike enables the rider to take off in less than five seconds - from ground and water - while using a 65 hp Rotax 582, and even in less time with an 80 hp Rotax 912 engine. Made from 5052 aluminum, trike/boat/flying machine is especially designed to survive against daily salt-water use and also have four air-tight seamless chambers and cross bracing.
The amphibious trike is fitted with retractable wheels that allow the rider to retract the them when flying, and lower when back to the beach or road. The boat is equipped with water rudders that are operated by cables and the boat flies with a 2 degree angle of attack which decreases drag. The machine is priced at $39,000.
