Prototype flying automobile completes first flight between airports

A prototype flying automobile has moved nearer to manufacturing after fulfilling a key improvement milestone in a 35-minute flight between the worldwide airports in Nitra and Bratislava.

Slovenian startup Klein Imaginative and prescient’s patent protected dual-mode car-aircraft, AirCar, accomplished its 142nd profitable touchdown in Bratislava. The car then reworked right into a sports activities automobile in beneath three minutes and was pushed by its inventor Professor Stefan Klein and co-founder Anton Zajac to downtown Bratislava, reducing the everyday journey time by an element of two.

The AirCar Prototype 1 is supplied with a 160HP BMW engine with fixed-propeller and a ballistic parachute. Underneath the supervision of the Civil Aviation Authority, the AirCar has accomplished over 40 hours of take a look at flights, together with steep 45 diploma turns and stability and manoeuvrability testing. AirCar Prototype 1 has flown at 8200 ft and reached a most cruising velocity of 190km/h (103kt).

AirCar Prototype 2, the pre-production mannequin, shall be geared up with a 300HP engine and obtain the EASA CS-23 plane certification with an M1 highway allow. With its variable pitch propeller, the Prototype 2 is anticipated to have a cruise velocity of 300km/h (162kt) and vary of 1000km (621mi).

“Professor Stefan Klein is the world chief within the improvement of user-friendly Flying Vehicles.” stated Dr. Branko Sarh, Senior Technical Fellow, Boeing.  “The automated transition from highway car into an air car and vice versa, deploying/retracting wings and tail is just not solely the results of pioneering enthusiasm, revolutionary spirit and braveness; it’s an final result of fantastic engineering {and professional} data,” he added.

Anton Zajac, Co-founder of Klein Imaginative and prescient, added: “This flight begins a brand new period of twin transportation automobiles. It opens a brand new class of transportation and returns the liberty initially attributed to automobiles again to the person.” stated Professor Klein after exiting the AirCar cockpit in Bratislava. “AirCar is not only a proof of idea; flying at 8,200ft at a velocity of 100kt, it has turned science fiction right into a actuality.”
