The Flying Car! [VIDEO]

flying carThe flying car will be on the road in the near future! In fact, that was said back in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair. Well, we don’t know about you, but we still have yet to see a car flying around out there unless you catch a Jetsons re-run or Back to the Future.

However, that could be changing. A Slovakian company, AreoMobil, plans to make flying cars commercially available in the next 24 months.  They have been rapidly ramping up and modifying several prototypes, just in time for their formal announcement couple of weeks ago.

It looks as though their flying car is an elongated vehicle that is road ready with stowable wings. When released to the public, the flying car will be priced more for luxury car enthusiasts. The price on this car is also luxury pricing at around $1.3 million. The vehicle will be a two-seater with a 435-mile range. The take-off speed will be 81 miles per hour, which will require a good stretch of open road (good luck if you are stuck on I-25). The top air speed will be 124 miles per hour and it comes with an autopilot function. And, yes, you will need a pilot license to operate this vehicle.

But, we have heard about the imminent release of flying cars before. In fact, a company called Terrafugia promised delivery of flying cars in 2011 shortly after receiving FAA approval. They are now saying they hope to deliver their vehicles this year or next.

So, do not be surprised if the actual flying car is pushed off a couple years. In the meantime, we will go back to watching the Jetsons.
