Back in 2017, a flying car costing more than € 1 million was exhibited in Monaco
Slovakia-based AeroMobil unveiled the design of the flying car, which costs more than one million euros, on Thursday at the annual Top Marques Monaco luxury goods exhibition in the Principality of Monaco.
According to the company, the AeroMobil Flying Car can already be pre-ordered with the first copies available in 2020. With a teardrop-shaped, six-meter-long and open-wing wings, the nine-meter-wide vehicle can switch to flying mode in just three minutes, while the wings can be folded for normal road traffic.
AeroMobil aims to produce up to 500 units from its first commercial airplane, which can travel a maximum of 750 kilometers with two passengers on board at a cruising speed of 260 kilometers per hour. The price of the flying car will range from 1.2 million to 1.5 million euros.
However, to fly, the car will need an airport or other licensed runway, while owners will need a pilot’s license in addition to their regular license, said company spokesman Stefan Vadocz. He added that the delivery of vehicles that he said will comply with both air and road traffic rules is expected to begin in 2020.
However, before so-called airplanes can become commonplace, they must meet a set of flight safety requirements to dispel people’s fears.
