You read it right; it’s the car that flies! This dream has been alive in so many minds for so many years that with the advancement being made in technology, it was only a matter of time before it materialized and here we are to tell you that it has, of course, been made possible! The AeroMobil produced by a Slovakian firm, is capable of flying 430 miles on a full petrol tank and can simply park into a normal parking space when its wings are folded.
The flying car AeroMobil has been designed in a way that it can make use of the existing infrastructure which is in place for automobiles and planes. The firm said that it ‘opens doors to real door-to-door travel.’ In car mode, this awesomely engineered (or should we say wonderfully engineered?) thing can snug into the standard parking area and thrives on the normal fuel available at conventional service stations.
The latest version of the craft is basically the third generation of this vehicle. AeroMobil spokesman, Tatiana Veber, revealed, “We have been developing the concept of a flying car since 1990. Our first model looked quite bizarre and it would have encountered problems in the regular use. That was a signal to improve the concept of the flying car in a way to become an integral part of the regular road traffic. We got a positive feedback from several experts in avionics, who appreciated design and the technical solution of the process of transformation. The car is constructed to be fueled at regular gas stations using the fuel for Rotax 912 ULS engine.”
AeroMobil is all set for showcasing the 3rd prototype to the world at Pioneers Festival in Austria on 29th October. The design, however, still needs to be adjusted as the folded wings are placed behind the driver in car mode. From the video released by the company, we know that “AeroMobil 3 is stylish, comfortable for both the driver and passenger, and exceptionally combines the performance of a sports car with qualities of an ‘ultralight’.”
