I saw so many films that gave this impression that when I grow up that there will be flying cars, and instead of doing a driving licence, I’ll be doing a flying licence. They finally tested out and it looks amazing!
What company do you wonder? Well it is not BMW or Mercedes its AeroMobil. An advanced engineering company that is commercializing a flying car. IT will be launching its new model of AeroMobil Flying Car at Top Marques Monaco show, on April 20, 2017. AeroMobil is completely combined aircraft as well as a fully functioning four-wheeled car, powered by hybrid propulsion. By combining aero and car functionality in perfect harmony it heralds a new era in efficient and exciting travel, offering users an unparalleled choice of transport on the road or in the air.
How much will it cost? The prototype is work in progress and only after completion of the certification and homologation both as a car and as well as an aircraft we will be able to set the final configuration and therefore the final price span. Expect the price combination of sports car and Light Sports Aircraft (LSA), several hundreds of thousand Euro.
If you want to drive and fly it you need a licence!
Private Pilot License (PPL) is recommended. However, we expect that for the early version of AeroMobil Sport Pilot License (SPL) will be sufficient. Training requirements for these licenses vary country by country, but minimum 40 hours of flight training is strongly recommended.
This could be revolutionary, saving space on the roads, quicker transport and higher bills! It sounds good but is it really?? Only the rich will be able to afford such an expensive luxury that I will constantly dream and wish for.
Animals could get hurt, the cars are already taking over with cat’s underneath them, running over dears, rats and other animals. The pollution killing us and them. I hope the flying cars are environment and animal friendly. Ironically, I am watching the movie K9 and it recalled how will dogs ride with fire trucks or police cars like in the movies? It will be so weird, right?!
Imagine when parents take their children to school, they will fly them and not drive them or school buses, what will happen to aeroplanes or helicopters, this is bringing about so many questions on that this flying car is going to have the effect on society.
