The journey from an idea to the take-off started a year and a half ago, using Dassault Systèmes technology to make it possible to design and manufacture the bike, and to test it and simulate its properties virtually.
All of the Flying Bike creators, regardless of their location and even though they were several hundred kilometers from each other, simultaneously worked on the same 3D data models.
