In the pioneer’s festival in Vienna, the most advanced flying car was unveiled by the Slovakia based company, aeromobil. The aeromobil 3.0 is the name of their prototype. It has accommodations for two passenger and has length of the limousine. The car make you feel like the luxury sedan. The amazing feature of the car, which makes it advanced, is that it can transform from car to airplane within few minutes and reminds us like a transformer from the film- Transformers. The speed of the vehicle in car form is upto 160km per hour and 200km per hour as a flying aircraft.
Front view makes it look like a car whereas back view makes feel like a private jet. The aeromobil 3.0 requires 250metres of open field, pavement or grassland to take off and 50metre space to land. When one feel it to fly, just a touch of a button ,it opens its wings like from the side automatically an a large becomes a small flying plane. It can be kept at home garage just like a car when we are done with the flying.
The company says if one need to buy the car, they must possess the pilot’s license, which is fair enough. We certainly don’t want someone to crash it onto or roofs. Presently only trained pilots are permitted to test the aeromobil 3.0.
