This news is about the hoverbike. Hoverbikes hover – they move in the air, but only right above the ground.

British developers work on hoverbikes. The American army is interested in them. They want to use them. The British developers and the American army work together.

Hoverbikes can be used instead of helicopters. Hoverbikes are better than helicopters. They are cheaper. They are safer. They can also be used as drones.

Difficult words: developer (a person who develops – makes – something), drone (a small aircraft with no pilot).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
