Engineers have been preoccupied with the idea of a flying car for years, and many prototypes have been born. One of the latest structures came from Slovakia. The car fits in a normal parking space, but when you open its wings it is six feet long and 16 feet wide. The two-seater weighs 450 kilograms and is powered by a Rotax 912 engine. The maximum speed of the car is 160 km / h. It consumes 7 and a half liters of fuel. When it reaches a speed of 130 km / h with the wings open, it rises into the air. Its flight speed is 200 km / h.
– I also paid attention to modern communication technology and design. It became quite pretty, not a very bizarre sight on the roads, said Stefan Klein, the structure’s designer.
The 52-year-old design engineer, himself an amateur pilot, has made his old dream come true. With the new flying car, named Aeromobil 3, they want to come forward in 2014. For the time being, the model will only be produced in a limited series, but they hope that after a while it can also be mass-produced. The development team is also thinking about how to solve the problem of takeoff and takeoff.
“Here we can just see the wings open in a few seconds.” This is the key moment when the angle of inclination of the wings changes, said design engineer Stefan Klein.
Will we one day go to work with such a structure? This is the question.
