I love the AeroMobil. It’s a flying car. For real. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below. The AeroMobil looks great and it can transform from a car into an airplane in seconds. According to their website, as a car it fits into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic like regular automobiles. As a plane it can use any airport in the world, but can also take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long.
The latest version of the AeroMobil is predominantly built from advanced composite material. That includes its body shell, wings, and wheels. It also contains all the main features that are likely to be incorporated into the final product, such as avionics equipment, autopilot and an advanced parachute deployment system.
AeroMobil also implements a number of other advanced technologies, such as a variable angle of attack of the wings that significantly shortens the take-off requirements, and sturdy suspension that enables it to take-off and land even at relatively rough terrain.
