The AeroMobil Flying Car can (hopefully ) be yours in 2017 when it goes on sale! Following on from the latest version of the prototype, revealed last year, the company see their concept available to purchase within two years.
The idea of taking a car and making it transform into an aeroplane has taken many years and four prototype designs to get to the pre-production version we see in the video. This latest version was shown last October and certainly proves that AeroMobil are getting closer to the final version that will be able to be used by pilots.
As a car the company say it can:
fit into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic
Since October 2014 the current 2 seater prototype has been undergoing flight tests. It’s light construction, using the latest composite materials allows it to not only use ‘normal’ airports but also take advantage of grass field strips. With just a 200m grass runway needed to take-off and a range of 435 miles the AeroMobil certainly offers a great deal of flexibility when using it to fly.
Driving it on the road and you can add another 110 miles to the range but you can’t always travel in a straight line, there will be more traffic and the views wont be as good!
Following on from the 2017 release of this flying car the company are looking to develop a four seater version with twice the range and no need for a human pilot…
