this would be for tall dowtown office buildings. need to send files across town fast, or get to a meeting with other company heads? just use ultralight gliders. have a little fleet on top of the building. there could even be ultralight couriers. I know it's not zoned, but the gliders really couldn't do much damage, so the laws could be changed. as long as you fly above the telephone lines and look out for pigeons and suicidal stock market peons, there shouldn't be a problem.

Much the same idea, but indoors not outdoors. (Croissant for adding a passenger.) [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004]

       OK, coming soon, ultralight ninja custard clocks.   

       Yes to sending files, nooooooo to launching people. But that's up to the user. Bun.

       Owls?
schematics, Jul 09 2004
  

       Yeah. Draco's is a Eurasian Eagle Owl and Ron's an Elf Owl and Harry's is a Snowy Owl.

       You can't get an owl to finish doing the laundry...
...leaves sheets, and hoots.
