Rainer Farrag established Trixy Aviation Products GmbH at the very end of 2010 in Austria.
Rainer's dream of a flying car started, when he was a young engineer.
Flying cars were nothing new at that time. Flying cars had been in development since the 1930s and the development never stopped.
A simple search on the web would find and show many ideas. The famous Wikipidia documents some of the historical flying car developments.
Not only airplanes were developed to drive on the road. The developments also included helicopters and gyrocopters. Terrafugia is one of the latest roadable airplane developments in the arena. PAL-V is also one of the latest roadable gyrocopter developments which has recently been all over the media.
It was obvious for Rainer that the approach many developer chose in the past was wrong:
Driving an aircraft on the road with folded wings or folded rotors is not practical.
Apart from the complicated mechanics and the high price tag, most designs were bulky on the road and difficult to park in the city.
One aircraft type (airplane, gyrocopter or helicopter) is not flexible enough to fulfill different missions.
And above all, the air traffic regulations do not allow an aircraft to take-off or land everywhere. This is only permitted in air fields and airports.
Rainer's idea was different. He strived to develop an electric driven, enclosed motorcycle, which can be docked into an airplane, a gyrocopter a helicopter a train wagon, a jet-skier or a vertical conveyor parking. Rainer applied for international patents and started working on the construction drawings to fulfill his dream. He gave the development project the name TRIXYZ.
Rainer decided to divide the project into several steps and started the first step with the creation of an exceptional ultra-light gyrocopter. The project G 4-2 R (Gyrocopter FOR TWO powered by Rotax) was launched at the end of 2010, when Trixy Aviation was established in Austria with a subsidiary for manufacturing the gyrocopter in Slovenia (Letalstvo Farrag d.o.o).
Trixy Aviation presented the project for the first time at the AERO show in Germany in April 2011 and obtained the German type certificate after 14 months of detailed and complex work on January 12th, 2012.
Trixy Aviation presented its revolutionary Model Zero at the AERO show on April 18th, 2012. The prototype made its maiden flight in Magdeburg / Germany at the End of June 2012.
The Trixy-Team continues the development of the docking system and the flying Motorcycle. The current goal is to obtain the type certificate before the end of 2015.
