This flying car is not just a technological statement but is also efficient as it greatly reduces traveling times compared to conventional airplane journeys. Whilst most civil helicopters and personal drones consume large amounts of energy, the flying car uses energy supplies efficiently and is able to cover thousands of miles with reduced traveling times.

Either you choose to travel by land or air, the flying car gives you the liberty to enjoy exciting landscape views at outstanding vantage points and gives you the freedom to speed spree up in the air. However, if you prefer to just have a normal day then you have the option to drive it on land.

Technical precision and safety

The flying car is powered by an internal combustion boxer engine with a FADEC digital control unit. Its propeller is supplied with a 224kW of power, through a customized 2.0 turbocharged 4-cylinder boxer ICE, when the flight mode operation is selected. A hybrid electric system is used when the vehicle is being driven on land where the generator is the same engine that propels the car in the air. The generator then powers a pair of electric motors located on the front axle. AeroMobil’s flying car is capable of reaching an automotive top speed of 160 kph, approximately 750 km of aerospace maximum cruise range, and a fuel capacity of 90 liters.

Conquering the world

At present, AeroMobil’s flying car is certified to operate in Europe with plans to get the US clearing too then eventually introduce it in China. AeroMobil is only planning to produce 500 units of its first vehicle with the first 25 flying cars is dedicated as Founders Edition.
