  • Airbus Working on Secret Flying-Car Project named Vahana
 

The secret project will focus on a flying car.

The project Vahana started early this year. It is one of the first projects of A cubed. It is a part of the advanced projects and partnerships outpost of the Airbus Group in Silicon Valley. According to Vahana, they are passionate about personal flight which is the reason they are working on a flying car concept.

According to the company, the aircraft that is being built won’t require any kind of runway. This air craft will be self-piloted and will have the ability to detect any obstacle or any other flying craft in the way.

This air craft will be designed to carry a signal passenger or only cargo. They are planning to develop this aircraft as the first, registered one to be introduced without a pilot.

The company is aiming to produce and test a full sized prototype of the air craft by the year 2017. Vahana will be able to demonstrate the production model by the year 2020.

Airbus which is the biggest French company to compete with US Boeing is all set to challenge new horizons with its air craft technology. The company is best known for its jetliners.

The double-decker A380 is the best product by the company. This new flying car project is a little different than the conventional aircraft projects. This concept might look somewhat unrealistic but it is one of the coolest ideas that French company has put forward to. 

Flying cars are a concept that are dreamt by hundreds of people. Many other companies are working on their own prototypes to produce a vehicle like this.

These have led us to the compilation of drones that we commonly see these days. Thus we can actually expect a flying car coming by Vahana in the future for sure.
