The first prototype of the Pegase was presented at the SOFINS 2015 and according representative of the Company the vehicle is ready to be tested, but currently it needs to be qualified to military standards for testing by the French army.

The Pegase flying cross-country vehicle is a two seat all-terrain-vehicle with a rear-mounted propeller that attaches to a fabric paraglider wing to enable flight.

It’s powered on the ground and in the air by a 100 hp gasoline engine mounted at the rear of the vehicle which enables it to reach a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph) on the road and 60 to 80 km/h (37-50 mph) in the air.

As with most paragliders, it doesn't require an airport and can take off and land from just about any open stretch of ground, including the beach. The Pegase can take off to a distance from 50 to 100 m and land to a distance from 10 - 30 m.
     
At SOFINS 2015, the International conference and exhibition dedicated for the Special Forces Operation of the French Army, the Company Vaylon has presented the Pegase, a new off-road vehicle able to fly in the sky and run in off-road terrain thanks to a single propeller and a flexible wing. A single engine with propeller is mounted at the rear of the vehicle to fly and run in off-road conditions.
     

This vehicle has been designed to offer a new fast attack vehicle to Special Forces unit able to flight to a maximum altitude of 3,500 m and run in all-terrain condition at a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The vehicle can carry two full-equipped soldiers and has a maximum payload of 250 kg.

With minimum weight, dynamic handling and peak performance, in land use the Pegase is the ideal candidate for demanding terrain and sand dune. In flight mode, the Pegase uses the latest reflex paraglider wing technology. In case of engine or wing failure the Pegase simply floats softly to the ground on its paraglider, or an emergency parachute can be deployed.

The Pegase is not only design for military applications but can also to be used for emergency medical teams, aerial survey companies, pipeline companies, and search and rescue teams. It offers an excellent solution to reach difficult terrain.
