pegasus

A pegasus is a Federation flying machine.  A square white platform with a seat hangs under a bank of jets, supported by four poles, one at each corner.  We’ve only seen one-person pegasuses, using a single bank of jets, but I believe larger models are possible, by combining banks of jets.  The name is often shortened to peggie.

We had never seen small flying machines, although we suspected the thieves used them to reach Moderato’s house on Yband 3.  See Report 28.

Tony saw hunters using them on Holingard 9.  See Report 37.

I thought I ought to include them in my report, so I went to the Zejets works on Obegon 4, to see them being made.  See Report H.
