The AOPA website (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) reported a couple of weeks ago on the Wildfire, a folding ebike that will fit in a single engine airplane, thus solving the transportation problems of pilots who fly into regional airports in remote areas.
It’s a new folding, electric bicycle promises convenient ground transportation for pilots, all in a 54-pound package—and a tax credit to boot. The Wildfire 20-inch bike can be ridden like a conventional bicycle. Or flip the switch on the handlebar to the “assist” mode and the bike’s electric motor kicks in to help propel it while you pedal. Or for an even less-strenuous workout, flip to the “auto” setting and let the electric motor do all the work, propelling you along at a comfortably brisk speed.
