We used to say that one day we will be seeing cars flying over us, most of us thought that was just complete nonsense, but now, we might be seeing that happening in the next 20 to 30 years.
A company from Slovakia shared a test flight video of their car that is capable of transforming into an airplane and could fly.
The car that we are talking about is capable of transforming itself into an airplane in just 3 minutes and is capable of flying 1,500 feet into the air.
Air Car, which is developed by Klein Vision, a company in Slovakia, was showcased in a viral video on YouTube, a video streaming website.
The video of the test flight shows the car transforming into an airplane on a runway and taking off for a test flight.
The developers of the car said that the vehicle is capable on self-driven journeys or as a commercial taxi service.
During the press release, an official said:
The fifth-generation flying car designed by Professor Stefan Klein completed two 1500′ AGL flights at Piestany airport in Slovakia this week. The model safely achieved two full airport patterns, including two takeoffs and landings.
The car is around 1,100 kilograms heavy and is only a 2 seater.
Also, it is capable of carrying 200 kilograms more, which means you can have around 1,300 kilograms of weight in total to fly it safely.
The car is powered by a 1.61 engine from BMW.
The statement added:
Powered by a BMW 1.6l engine, the car-plane has an effective power output of 140HP. Estimated travel range of AirCar is 1,000km and flight consumption of 18 l/h.
Air Car was first introduced last year during the China International Import CIIE in Shanghai, China.
This car is just a prototype.
