    SHREVEPORT, LA, September 15, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Every year, Hammacher Schlemmer, the catalogue firm long known for featuring one of a kind, quality products goes all out for the holidays. This year, the prestigious catalog is showcasing SkyRunner on its holiday 2017 cover, arriving in homes September 15th. SkyRunner is the unique all-terrain vehicle that brings the dream of flight as well as heart-pounding on-ground adventure to a broad American market for the first time.

Delivering 75 MPH off-road performance, SkyRunner not only conquers grass, sand, dirt and pavement, it conquers gravity as well. Developed and refined over years of testing, with input from some of the leading authorities in the world, SkyRunner makes flying easier, safer and more affordable than ever, and combines the practical benefit of owning a world-class ATV.

SkyRunner is as big as a Denali, as strong as an ATV, but uniquely, it also flies. Stewart Hamel, the developer of SkyRunner says everywhere he goes SkyRunner draws a crowd. "People love the look of this serious machine, the minute they see it--it's a world-class ATV, but bigger. And then when they learn that it also flies, the first question they ask, is can I try this?"

SkyRunner has two patents pending and is FAA approved as a Light Sport Aircraft. It can carry two adults, a pilot and passenger, and up to 580 pounds of useable weight in the air. SkyRunner has been designed to be easy to fly, and provides a pilot with an intuitive flight system comprised of foot pedals for right and left steering and a throttle quadrant for controlling the aircraft's takeoff and landing. Its 38'-wide para-wing provides lift from a 75-inch, 4-blade propeller that powers the SkyRunner at up to 45 MPH in the air. An optional 160 HP engine provides even greater lift and performance.

On the ground, it operates like a NASCAR version of an ATV. It provides drivers with inverted double wishbone suspension and optimal chassis control for handling rough roads and sharp corners with sports car like precision.

Requiring only 12 hours of flight training, the cost of which is included in the price, SkyRunner makes flying easier and more accessible than ever. And while it is priced at $139,000, a special financing program means it can be purchased the way many families buy a boat or car of the same price.

Michael Rybarski, the CMO at SkyRunner said, "Whether you are an off-roader, a rancher, a business exec who needs to oversee property, a hunter, or someone who just always wanted to fly, SkyRunner can deliver an experience that is unique, that's why Hammacher Schlemmer chose us for their holiday cover."

SkyRunner, LLC. is a privately-owned company with production facilities located in Shreveport, LA. It is committed to the highest quality, and safety in the products it builds--making the dream of flight both real and practical for businesses, individuals, and enthusiasts.
