AeroMobil flying car flies for the first time

Date:22 January 2014 Tags:,

After devoting over 20 years to creating a flying car, Stefan Klein of Slovakia can be proud of what he has finally accomplished: the AeroMobil flying car.

It’s not only pleasant to look at, but it can fly, too. Yep, the AeroMobil 2.5 prototype successfully conducted its maiden voyage in September last year. Check it out in this video…

Constructed of a steel framework with a carbon coating and powered by a Rotax 912 engine, AeroMobil can reach a top speed of 200 km/h when flying and 160 km/h on the road. It can fly for 700 kilometres and clock a distance of 500 kilometres when in car mode.

When in its automobile configuration, it is 6 metres long and 1,6 metres wide, and can fit comfortably in a standard parking space. As a plane, its width it 8,2 metres and its length remains as 6 metres.

Do you think it’s the best looking flying car to date? Post a comment below…
