In times when roads are free, the sky sees a new vehicle.
Say hello to a flying car!
Transforms from a car to an airplane
Klein Vision, a Slovakian-based company, has launched AirCar, which completed its epoch-making flight between two international airports in Nitra and Bratislava on 28 June.
The 35-minute test run was piloted by Stefan Klein, founder and CEO of the company itself.
The two-seated car-aircraft runs on regular petrol-pump fuel and equipped with a 160-horsepower BMW engine and a fixed propeller.
With a maximum cruising speed of 190km per hour, AirCar can fly about 1,000 km at a height of 8,200 ft.
The vehicle’s wings and tail can be retracted, therefore completely transforming from a full-blown aircraft to an automobile in less than three minutes.
After landing in Bratislava, the car was back on four wheels, driven into the city centre.
Coming to a sky near us soon?
According to Klein Vision, the flying car has completed more than 40 hours of test flights.
The company is currently working on a model named AirCar Prototype 2, which will boast a 300-horsepower engine and a variable pitch propeller that gives it a cruise speed of 300km per hour.
The website also states their plans to develop three and four-seater models, along with twin-engine.
AirCar has brought the pages of science fiction to life. How excited are you about these flying cars?
