Ecoflyer: Your Aerial SUV

    The Ecoflyer two-seat light sport aircraft also serves as a flying motor home. Need a place to stay at your destination? Bring a sleeping bag and stretch out on the cabin's built-in bed. Want to go bicycling or kayaking? Bring your gear along in the airplane. You can even set up a camp table inside and turn the two front seats around to create dining for four. The Ecoflyer is built in Canada by Explorer Aéronautique, the same folks who developed the much larger Private Explorer, a flying motor home designed for aerotourism. A prototype of the Ecoflyer is flying now, and you can buy your own for just $100,000. Deliveries are expected to start by late 2009. (819.536.5353, www.exploreraero.com)
