The Slovak company AeroMobil brought the third generation of the flying AeroMobil 3.0 car to tests. At the moment it is one of the most perfect samples of the flying cars in the world. The Flying Car is constructed on the basis of a steel power framework. It has folding wings and its Rotax 912 engine accelerates the car on the highway to 160 km/h, and in the sky — to 200 km/h.
On the route fuel economy of AeroMobil 3.0 ia 8 liters/100 km, and in air — 15 liters an hour. Fuel of this car usual motor petrol. The cruising range on the highway is equal 875 km. And in the plane mode AeroMobil 3.0 capable to overcome 700 km.
As for safety, in the car there is an autopilot and parachute system of rescue.
However, this car is considered the aircraft so steering of such means will require the license of the pilot. Certainly, nobody assumes that owners of such devices will fly up “over traffic jams” directly from the highway or streets. It is unsafe and contradicts all rules of flights. But this car gives the chance to the owner to reach from the house to small airfield then to fly up, overcome some hundreds of kilometers by air and to sit down on the same small airfield. Then to finish a trip, having passed final some kilometers on the highway. It is tempting opportunity for who has both a driver’s license, and the license of the pilot.
Slovaks don’t speak about exact terms of serial release of the flying car yet. Tests both on the earth, and in air still are coming it. We can only wish AeroMobil success and hope that once we will be able not only to drive but fly as well.
