2017 Flying Car - Aeromobil 3.0 - fly, design, specs, test, drive (Cars and Dogs)
A vehicle that can transform from a car into a plane will become the world’s first commercially available flying car later this year, the company developing it has announced.
Slovakian firm Aeromobil will unveil its two-seater flying car at the Top Marques car show in Monaco on April 20, 27 years after it first began developing the concept of a flying car. Aeromobil claims the vehicle meets the regulatory requirements for both cars and planes.
“By combining aero and car functionality in perfect harmony it heralds a new era in efficient and exciting travel, offering users an unparalleled choice of transport on the road or in the air,” Aeromobil states on its website.
“Aeromobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distance trips and in areas with limited or missing road infrastructure.”
Earlier this month, Aeromobil secured $3.2 million in funding to help bring the vehicle to market and is currently seeking additional investors, a spokesperson for the company tells Newsweek.
