#2696: DescentDrone

Now that even middle eastern police forces are using flying bikes, today’s invention makes use of this general concept in connection with ejection from aircraft.

When a pilot decided to eject, his cockpit cabin would be blown clear of the fuselage, as usual.

After a few seconds, instead of a parachute, a small set of rotor blades would deploy.

This would allow the pilot to steer his craft nearer to his own lines, before making a soft(ish) landing.

At no point would he be left conspicuously dangling under a canopy, a target for anyone below.
