Comments Off on AeroMobil is launching a flying car that you can actually buy this year

We’ve been waiting for flying cars ever since the 1960s – and they’re set to become a viable reality this year. AeroMobil just announced that it is ready to launch its futuristic flying car – and you’ll actually be able to buy one in a few months. The company plans to show off the latest iteration of the car/plane hybrid next week in Monaco, with pre-orders starting later this year. According to the company, “AeroMobil is a completely integrated aircraft as well as a fully functioning four-wheeled car, powered by hybrid propulsion.” So far, we don’t know how much the futuristic car will cost, or any real specifics, but we do know that the company is aiming to revolutionize the way we get around. “AeroMobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distance trips and in areas with limited or missing road infrastructure.?” Related: AeroMobil unveils futuristic flying car, plans to launch by 2017 AeroMobil revealed an early prototype of their flying car several years ago, and since then, they’ve been hard at work creating a car that fits within existing regulatory frameworks for both cars and airplanes, which means it will be a viable form of transportation in the very near future. They plan to show off the latest model at the supercar show Grimaldi Forum in Monaco from April 20 until April 24. + AeroMobil
