5 Awesome flying cars

Owning a flying car is closer than ever! With these 5 awesome flying cars examples we want to kickstart your dreams!

Kitty Hawk Flyer

The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a new, all-electric aircraft. It is safe, tested and legal to operate in the United States in uncongested areas under the Ultralight category of FAA regulations. We’ve designed our first version specifically to fly over water. You don’t need a pilot’s license and you’ll learn to fly it in minutes. We publicly revealed the working prototype in April 2017. The official Flyer will be available by the end of the year.

The TF-X™

The TF-X™ will be able to take off and land vertically from a level clearing of at least 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter. Flying the TF-X™ will require substantially less training time than a traditional pilot’s license or sport pilot certificate. Driving the TF-X™ will require a standard US driver’s license. The price will be consistent with high-end luxury cars. More specific pricing information will become available as we progress in the development of the TF-X™ program.

The PAL-V

Inspired by nature, engineered by men and evolved over time, the PAL-V Liberty is a groundbreaking product that inaugurates the age of the flying car. The PAL-V Liberty is a marriage between safety and fun, designed to satisfy the most demanding customers.
Thanks to a number of patented technologies, the dimensions of the PAL-V Liberty do not exceed those of a regular car. It therefore blends perfectly with everyday road traffic, yet offers a new level of mobility.

Among many unique features, the PAL-V Liberty has two distinct attributes that set it apart from all other concepts. The first is that lift is created by a wind-powered rotor, making the PAL-V Liberty float in the air. Taking this gyroplane principle to the next level is the secret behind the safest and easiest flying vehicle on the market.

The AeroMobil

The inspiration for the AeroMobil design was a perfectly aerodynamic teardrop shape. Like petals opening, the wings gradually separate, as does the retractable landing gear and entrance for the crew.

The exterior is highly aerodynamic, with strict attention paid to safety and control both in the air and on the ground. This focus on safety, however, has not stopped the design and engineering team from developing a unique design, with elegant proportions and a refined appearance.

AeroMobil’s exterior is a real technological showcase, utilising the latest in carbon composite construction to deliver aerodynamic performance combined with automotive strength.

Advanced optimisation and analysis techniques have delivered a vehicle that, when airborne, demonstrates stability and predictability, and which has a flight envelope that is comparable with existing standards in the field of general aviation.

The Maverick LSA

The Maverick LSA “Flying Car” is the fulfillment of a dream.  It is the result of six long years of research and development by a creative non-profit organization known as the Indigenous Peoples’ Technology and Education Center (I-TEC)  Visit www.itecusa.org).  I-TEC’s mission is to provide tools and technologies to God-followers in frontiers areas to meet their needs.

The Maverick LSA design has been developed as an easy-to-operate – air & land craft.  It is intuitive and safe to fly, drive and maintain by people in frontier areas of the world enabling them to use this unique vehicle in missions and humanitarian applications – in the world “beyond roads.”

Beyond Roads LLC has been granted the manufacturing rights for the Maverick. This will facilitate the development of a commercial market that will make it possible to produce this unique multi-medium transportation vehicle at an affordable cost for those people of high need and low means in frontier areas, while providing a useful utility vehicle and fun recreational vehicle.
