The history of man in humanity has always been marked by wanting to fly and from the first inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci in the Renaissance era until the days of current technological development, we have sought to have a vehicle that can fly and be terrestrial at the same time.
After decades of technological advancement, the first “commercial flying car in the world” will finally be presented in Miami. This flying vehicle called the Pioneer Personal Air Landing Vehicle, or PAL-V, is equipped with aerial and rear retractable propellers and can navigate at an altitude of up to 12,500 feet.
It uses gasoline from cars and runs at a maximum speed of 200 miles per hour in the air and 100 miles per hour on land. The Dutch manufacturing machine is already in production and sells for $599,000 with 70 pre-orders to date; The first delivery is expected to be in 2021.
The flying car comes with capacity for two people and has 230 Steam Horse Power and a four-cylinder engine. The vehicle converts from a three-wheeled car to a gyrocopter in just 10 minutes and can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than eight seconds.
'After years of hard work, overcoming technical and qualification challenges, our team managed to create an innovative flying car that meets the existing safety standards, determined by the regulatory bodies of all countries of the world'. - Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V
"While the concepts of other flying car manufacturers require modified regulations and, in many cases, technologies not yet existing, PAL-V deliberately chose to design and build a flying car with proven technologies and fully compatible with existing regulations," he said.
