Aeromobil Flying Car Takes to the Skies for the First Time

Flying car flies for the first time

Flying cars have been the stuff of dreams for decades and there are few companies out there working to make them reality. A new company in the flying car market called Aeromobil has announced that its flying automobile has made its first flight. The vehicle is the Aeromobil Version 2.5 is a prototype has been in development for 20 years.

The flying car has retractable wings and a rear mounted propeller. Power comes from a 100 hp liquid cooled Rotax 912 engine mounted behind the two passenger seats. That engine has two drive shafts with one going to the front wheels to propel the vehicle on the ground and the other going to the propeller provide power for flight.

The vehicle weighs about 980 pounds and has a 27 foot wingspan. There is no indication of when a production version of this flying car might be available or how much it might cost. The lightweight car looks rather fragile to my eyes making me wonder how well it would fare on the streets.
