Police officers in Dubai are training on flying hoverbikes with four propellers to help them fight crime from the skies. 

Police believe the S3 2019 hoverbike, designed by Hoversurf of California, will help them reach hard-to-access areas when they respond to emergencies.   

The hoverbikes will be in action by 2020 with two crews already learning how to pilot them. 

"Currently we have two crews already training and we're increasing the number," said Khalid Nasser Alrazooqi of Dubai Police.  

The machines reportedly sell for $150,000 each.

The 253-pound, battery-powered hoverbike can fly for up to 40 minutes before it will need recharging. Top speed is 60 mph and it can fly as high as 16 feet off the ground, the Daily Mail reports.
