Getting to the next social evening using a flying car is quite an appealing idea, right? This dream could become a reality very soon thanks to AeroMobil 3.0, a vehicle of the future, halfway between the small plane and the sports car. Its designer has put an end to the traffic jams. Maybe very soon you will fly through the air to reach your friends!
A combination of the two words “aviation” and “automobile”, the AeroMobil 3.0 prototype was unveiled at the “Pioneers Festival”, a conference on technology and entrepreneurship in Vienna, Austria. According to its designer Stefan Klein, it took him only 10 months to design and develop this awesome car. The AeroMobil 3.0 is a car that can turn itself into a plane in just two minutes, you only have to push the button to to spread its wings. When used as a car, the prototype has no trouble driving on conventional roads.
The craft can reach a top speed of 160 km/h on land and 200 km/h in the air. However, to take off the road, you will need a 250m of road or free track in front of you. For landing, only 50 meters will be sufficient. Compact, it is very easy to park it in a shed or in your garage. In addition, the vehicle runs on gasoline and not kerosene so it can be fueled at any regular service station. The autonomy is 875 km on the highway, or 700 km in the air, which is equivalent to a 4 hours flight. The co-founder Juraj Vaculík has already said that the flying car could become a regular means of transport for travelers making “short and medium distances.”
Unfortunately, to operate the AeroMobil 3.0, a simple car license will not suffice. Considered it is also a light aircraft, you would require an equivalent of a microlight license. For now, the release date and price have not yet been decided by the Slovak company that is always looking to improve his car.
Of course, the AeroMobil is still in its prototype stage and no sale date has been decided, probably it is the first step towards personal flying vehicles. We are impressed by this fireball and we look forward to seeing the first devices move in the sky. As for you, would you leave the traffic to float in the air?
