Taking flight and driving tests In 2012, the Dutch company Pal-V now says that its “Liberty” flying car has obtained the necessary approvals for the vehicle to travel on the roads of European Union countries. The permission does not include the use of the flyby feature yet.
Robert Dingmanseh, CEO of PAL-V, which manufactures the world’s first unique flying car, declared in a previous statement that “after years of hard work and overcoming technical and qualification challenges, our team has succeeded in creating an innovative flying car that complies with current safety standards. Set by global regulatory bodies.
The manufacturer certification included brake and emissions tests. The PAL-V Liberty is a three-wheeler, two-seat, and rotary-plane compact into one. Its drivers will need a license to fly.
The company says the car uses automobile gasoline, can fly at a top speed of 180 kilometers per hour and can fly 500 kilometers. It is also moving at a speed of 160 kilometers per hour on land.
The emergency vehicle is equipped with retractable upper and rear propellers that enable it to fly at an altitude of 12,500 feet (3,800 meters).
The company says it takes about ten minutes to switch from road to flight mode.
The vehicle currently in production is sold at a price of 500,000 euros and 90 vehicles will be produced during the initial phase of the vehicle’s manufacturing, when the first shipment begins in 2022.
Various versions of the flying car are being developed in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Japan, China and the United States. The owner will need a driver’s license and a pilot’s license.
