That's outstanding. I'd sure like to get my hands on one of those!

It would appear so.... I wonder if this would be legal in the US... or if additional mods would have to be made... emissions and such?  I think they should have called it the "Flying Duchman".   ;D

drivers lic or motorcycle ala the can am, the flying could be under the experimental and no lic needed. depends on weight , horse power, few minor other things. If I could afford one it would be hellava lot of fun...
Don't worry, some people are their own punishment in life...

I know parasails don't require a license and those little fixed wing things with the fan motor don't either.
You can run, but you will only die tired.

Because of the Main rotors blades and tail rotor, it will require a pilots license, it would be in the helo category.
