Moller International began in 1984, the dreamchild of Canadian-born inventor Paul Moller, who had ties to UC Davis in aeronautical engineering. More than two decades later, it has announced it will begin selling different versions of saucer-shaped aircraft that can take off and land vertically. It’s called the M200 volantor. FAA approval isn’t necessary, says the company. Different models are suitable for use over one’s own property, or on the ground with hopping capability, while another is for unmanned military use. The volantors will cost between $125,000 to as much as $450,000.
