Ok was just trying to fig out logic behind it ive read the reason no flying for us was because low debri feilds in sky but if that was the case the mutants gyro copters would smash into them by the way im fine with no flying but wouldnt mind a hover car or atv

I sounds like "no personal flying vehicles" was in part do to show budget and all. Only those with strong enough shields are safe to fly etc... and the mutants are not quite the most sane characters (minds might be warped by the mutations).

Presumably they're using military class vehicles that were developed by the EMC specifically to survive the new world conditions during the Pale Wars. EG: Low lieing debris fields, orbital debris falling, etc.etc.

I guess the mutants done have a fear of death, hence the whole running towards massive groups of enemies to attack and so being in the air in arkfalls does not even cross their minds.

I seem to recall Trion saying as much at some point - kudos on them for owning up. The problem is that the in-universe explanation sounds like it'd be far more applicable to the sort of flying vehicles that can get into the Big Black, as opposed to things like helicopters (we see Blackhawk-analogues with distinctly Mil-inspired forebodies in the game) and gyrocopters (a good example of the latter can be found in You Only Live Twice in the form of 'Little Nellie').

One of the preview videos commented on the lack of personal flying vehicles and while I don't think they specifically said it was down to budget, they had approached SyFy who had said no. They then justified it by making the game feel as if the Bay Area is isolated and so that you couldn't just jump on your vehicle and try to fly to the location of the show.
