New device allows flight in no-lift conditions

If you have a hang glider you can convert it into a man-powered flying machine for £1,700 by contacting Rupert Sweet-Escott at Airbike on 0751 4896168. The device works as follows: run down a hillside, launch, tuck your legs into the bag, find the pedals and get pedalling. According to Rupert, it’s possible to maintain level flight on pedal-power in no-lift conditions.
