Flying cars have been in the minds of millions, even Henry Ford himself predicted the possibility of it in the near future. Back in 2011, Terrafugia broke headlines of its flying car, the Transition, which was showcased at the NY Auto Show. It was one of the first legally approved road and air legal consumer flying cars and entered production in 2012, priced at around $250,000.
AeroMobil had announced its first prototype too, way back in 2007. Today though, the story is different. AeroMobil’s 3.0 is here, and its here to start a revolution in travel. The Flying Roadster (or AeroMobil 3.0) was first showcased last October. It has a Rotax 912 engine, that gives it a top air speed of 200 km/h. Plus, its fuel consumption isn’t all that heavy: 15 l/hour in air and a range of 700 km. It can take off and land on grass strips, not just road, that are 800m long.
The possibility of having flying cars is increasing day by day, however their success will lie on how much the governments help develop the required infrastructure. For now, they are just for the millionaires and billionaires willing to give air travel a new dimension.
