The future is now! Slovakia’s Aeromobil is getting ready to unveil its new flying car at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna, Austria later this month.
According to Motorsport, the flying car, dubbed Aeromobil 3.0, is production ready. It has a carbon fiber body, a steel chassis, weighs about 990 pounds and is powered by a Rotax 912 aircraft engine. The Aeromobil has a 27 foot wingspan but the wings fold up behind the cockpit so that the car can fit into a regular size parking space.
The flying car was designed by Stefan Klein. Klein has been working on his design since 1990 and now he’s ready to get it on the road… and in the air… to customers around the world.
We’ll get more details about the Aeromobil 3 later this month when it is officially unveiled in Austria. For now, let’s take a look at the Aeromobil 2.5 which made its first flight about a year ago.
The Aeromobil 3 has a top speed of about 100 mph on the road and 124 mph in the air. The car can fly for about 430 miles before it has to refuel.
There’s no word on price yet but we’re guessing that will cost as much as, well, a plane. Do you think flying cars will soon take over the sky?
