“Cars flying in the sky” appeared in a supercar exposition last Thursday. One of them is aiming for commercialization early next year.
‘Aeromobile’ based in Bratislava, Slovakia and ‘PAL-V’, a Dutch company, showcased their own self-developed cars at the 2017 Top Marques Monaco, a supercar event held in Monaco.
A car named Aeromobile with the same name as the company has four wheels in a shape similar to a light aircraft.
It is characterized by the wings that can fold like an insect and can fly through the wings as needed. It takes only 3 minutes to spread the wings.
The car, with a length of 6m, can seat up to two people and travels from the sky at 250km/h to a maximum of 750km.
The company plans to commercialize it in 2020, following necessary approval procedures. In order to drive this car, you must have an airplane pilot license in addition to your driver’s license.
Vehicle prices range from 1.2 million to 1.5 million euros (approx. 1.3 million – 1.6 million dollars) depending on options.
A spokesperson for the company said, “We will take reservations from today and we will deliver them by 2020.”
PAL-V also has a ‘flying car’ named ‘PAL-V Liberty’.
Similar to a helicopter, the car is 4 meters shorter than the Aeromobile and has wings that can be hidden in three wheels.
A maximum of two people can be boarded and can drive 400 to 500 kilometers per hour. When you want to fly while you are running on the ground, you can open the rotary wings and fly.
PAL-V Liberty aims to commercialize early next year, which is faster than Aeromobile.
PAL-V Liberty is now available for pre-order, and the price is relatively low, from 299,000 euros to 499,000 euros (approx. 320,000 – 535,000 dollars).
