AirCar - The Flying Car Passed Flight Tests. Next Stop: Driving a New Market
NITRA, Slovakia, October 28, 2020, /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

AirCar (V5) is the latest generation flying car that transforms from road 
vehicle into air vehicle in less than 3-minutes. Useful for leisure and 
self-driving journeys, and also as a commercial taxi service, the dual mode 
transformation vehicle can go from driving to flying mode with the click of a 

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.

Cars can be heavy, but planes must be light. The two-seat model weights 1,100kg 
and can carry additional load of 200kg per flight. 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. 

AirCar takes you from ground to sky with a takeoff of 300m reaching speeds up 
to 200 km/h. But most importantly, the stability and controllability of the 
AirCar is accessible to any pilot.

"The key flight parameters confirmed all theoretical concepts and calculations 
that the development of the AirCar was based on. Following the completion of 
all required flight tests in compliance with EASA regulations, we will deliver 
a model with a certified ADEPT, 300HP engine within the next 6 next months," 
said Professor Stefan Klein, Klein Vision's CTO and test pilot. "The good news 
is, we already have a buyer," Professor Klein added.

"With AirCar you will arrive at your destination without the hassle of getting 
a ride to airport and passing through commercial security, you can drive your 
AirCar to the golf course, the office, the mall or your hotel and park it in a 
normal parking space," said Anton Zajac, Klein Vision's co-founder, investor 
and pilot.  

"The wing and tail deployment/retraction mechanism is very impressive, 
converting the automobile into an airplane. The cockpit providing space for the 
driver/pilot and a passenger is very roomy and nicely styled. The overall 
appearance of the flying car on road and in the air is superb," added Dr. 
Branko Sarh, Boeing Co. Senior Technical Fellow (ret).
