AeroMobil – A car that really flies!

It’s been talked about for years, however a Slovakian firm is claiming to have made it possible.

AeroMobil can actually take to the air, to avoid traffic – a dream come true for many of us out there.

When in flight mode, this craft can fly 430 miles on one tank of petrol and has a top speed of 124 mph. On the road, when it’s wings are down, it’ll fit into a normal parking space with ease, and can take off and land at any airport in the world.

Certainly does seem a sci-fi dream come true!

The company that manufactured this craft said: “AeroMobil is a ‘flying car’ that perfectly makes use of existing infrastructure created for automobiles and planes, and opens doors to real door-to-door travel.”

“When in its car configuration, it can fit into a standard parking space, and it also takes normal fuel pumped at every service station.”

The latest version of this vehicle is in the third generation of its kind.

Tatiana Veber, an AeroMobil spokesman advised: “We have been developing the concept of a flying car since 1990.”

There are, however, still a few issues with the craft’s design. For example, the craft’s wings fold into the back seat behind the driver, when the vehicle is in car mode, which is a huge intrusion of space within the craft’s cabin.

AeroMobil will show their latest prototype of this craft to the world on 29th October  at the Pioneers Festival in Austria.

The video below shows the AeroMobil driving through the city streets and then taking to the air. Perhaps this is the start of futuristic travel?
