When last month appeared on internet videos with a small hoverboard traveling long distances at high altitudes, many people said it’s a trick. But that device, the Flyboard Air is real and just broke the world record for the longest distance traveled by a hoverboard.
Invented by frenchman, Franky Zapata ‘s aircraft traveled 2,250 meters, three times more than Catalin Alexandru Duru driven device, which held the previous record.
The new record was certified by Guinness World Book of Records representatives present at the spot.
Flyboard Air can reach altitudes of 3,000 meters and has a top speed of 150 Km/h. Zapata says, however, that not everyone can control the hoverboard, requiring at least 50 hours of training on a Flyboard, a device propelled by water jets also invented by the frenchman.
