A wingless personal air transport comprises two main sections: First, a substantially horizontal circular inner platform (12) is provided with its outer extremity having a first diameter D1. This inner platform (12) has a seat (22) for carrying at least one person (29, 30) and a shroud forming a smooth upper surface extending outward and downward to its outer extremity. Second, a substantially horizontal annular outer platform (14) is arranged coaxially with the inner platform (12).
