New “AirCar” Just Accomplished This Huge Technological Step

It seems like we might be living like The Jetsons sooner than we think.

In a huge technological advancement, a flying car has just completed its first ever inter-city travel. Running on regular pump fuel, this BMW engine flying machine can transform from car to plane in just a few minutes.

Driven by its inventor Professor Stefan Klein and co-founder Anton Zajac, the inter-city flight happened on June 28, 2021. It’s a 35-minute flight from international airports in Nitra to Bratislava in Slovakia, marking the AirCar’s 142nd successful landing.

There are still some unanswered questions about this amazing invention. Will the drivers have to learn how to land on a runway, or will the car be equipped with auto-landing equipment like some jets have today? Will the driver be expected to know about airspaces, or will the AirCar know not to enter illegal airspaces such as Restricted or Prohibited Areas?

AirCar had already completed 142 successful landings before its first ever inter-city flight. We can’t wait to see what’s next for this amazing invention!
