The Formula is a low-noise winged S/VTOL craft in development by Hoversurf which seats five. It has four pods each with 12 venturi fans, with four larger venturi fans mounted on the back for forward thrust, for a total of 52 fans.
The wings fold up to enable landing in a standard parking space and fold out to enable efficient cruising and increased safety. Other safety features will include redundant systems and an emergency parachute.
A full-size prototype first flight is planned by mid 2018.
