This is the motoring edition of BTN.
The Editor-in-Chief once had a PPL, and does most of the BTN road tests, but is unlikely to get his hands on this one. But once the second seat is fitted you never know!
AirCar (V5) is the latest generation flying car that transforms from road vehicle into air vehicle in less than three minutes.
The flying car achieved two full airport circuits, plus two take-offs and landings recently at Piestany Airport in Slovakia.
AirCar takes just 300m to rotate with speeds up to 200 km/h.
“The key flight parameters confirmed all theoretical concepts and calculations that the development of the AirCar was based on. Following the completion of all required flight tests in compliance with EASA regulations, we will deliver a model with a certified ADEPT, 300HP engine within the next six months,” said Professor Stefan Klein who led the design team and was the test pilot. “The good news is, we already have a buyer,” Professor Klein added.
