Convertible 'flying car' takes to the sky

Recommended Posts

  • Chamberlain

A prototype flying car has completed a 35-minute flight between international airports in Nitra and Bratislava, Slovakia.

The hybrid car-aircraft, AirCar, is equipped with a BMW engine and runs on regular petrol-pump fuel.

Its creator, Prof Stefan Klein, said it could fly about 1,000km (600 miles), at a height of 8,200ft (2,500m), and had clocked up 40 hours in the air so far.

It takes two minutes and 15 seconds to transform from car into aircraft.

it's not a new concept i've seen similar designs this past two decades with cars that look more like a hatchback than a sports/super car that makes up this prototype flying car ... we are a long way from seeing a Jetson's or a joe 90 style flying cars

The Terrafugia TF-X is the flying car that excites me it's went to concept to actual flying prototype


but the pods type flying cars seem to be gaining traction with the Airbus Popup and The Terrafugia TF-2
