BTN is pleased to report on the latest flying car project as they begin to become legal with European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval. No test drive yet for the editor-in-chief and the views of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) are not known.
Based in Bratislava (Slovakia), The AeroMobil Company dates from 2010 and first flew a proof of concept model in 2013 with steady progress since that time.
A flight test programme which began in September 2020, is part of the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) stringent CS23 requirements governing all critical aspects of flight.
The prototype has successfully met several key EASA CS23 requirements governing airworthiness, including the flight performance in terms of top and stall speeds as well as the impressive ability to take off within 1300ft and achieve a rate of climb of over 1200ft per minute.
First deliveries are planned for 2023.
