AeroMobil flying car to be available next year
Slovakian company AeroMobil has unveiled their newest prototype flying car in Brussels and plan to make it available next year.
The future is almost here folks! Whilst we’re still awaiting a true hoverboard we could soon be travelling door-to-door, no matter the distance.
This is the vision and aim of AeroMobil company CEO Juraj Vaculik.
Vaculik announced that the company plans to have the vehicle, dubbed the AeroMobil 3.0, commercially available by 2017.
The advantages of a flying car are obvious: first and foremost, it’s awesome.
Beyond that, it could also make a very excellent emergency vehicle, especially in places where roads won’t allow regular vehicles to move fast enough. Roads? Where we’re going…. you get the idea.
For domestic users, it could cut commute times and allow for better medium-distance mobility. This would definitely be worthy of leaving your keys visible on the table so people ask what you’re driving.
The company has been working since 1989 to build such a vehicle, and their most recent release is the 3.0 model.
As a car it fits into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic just like any other car. As a plane it can use any airport in the world, but can also take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long.
AeroMobil 3.0 is the latest in a series of experimental prototypes that the Slovakian company has been toying with. The design brings several additional features and design improvements over older vehicles.
One such improvement could be the passenger limit — currently, all of the company’s prototypes allow for two passengers. Vaculik hinted this could change, calling the 3.0 the
first product in a series of innovative vehicles.”
However, the company hasn’t released any details of future designs.
You can see the vehicle in the Justus Lipsius bulding in Brussels, were it will be on display until August 1st.
