How would you like it if the flying car is no longer just a dream, but reality? A Slovakian firm is working on the car's development for personal and commercial purposes. It is currently in conceptualizing stage. The firm AeroMobil will unveil its two-seater flying car at the Top Marques car show in Monaco on 20th April, 2017. The company claims the flying car meets the regulatory requirements for planes and cars. Also, AeroMobil has received a funding of $3.2 million on the flying car project and the company is looking for more investors for the project.
According to the company website: “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 3.0, a two-seater prototype was first showcased in 2014, and is powered by a Rotax 912 four-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 99 hp of power. The flying car has a top speed of 200 kmph in air and 160 kmph on road. It has fuel tank capacity of 8 litres with a range of 100 km on road, while 15 litres for one hour in the air.
