Flying automobile gets airworthiness certification

The Slovak Transport Authority has awarded a certificate of airworthiness to a flying automobile capable of reaching speeds of more than 100mph (160km) and heights of more than 8,000ft (2,500m).

AirCar, a hybrid car-aircraft, is powered by a BMW engine and operates on conventional petrol-pump gasoline. The transformation from automobile to aircraft takes two minutes and fifteen seconds.

According to the business, the certification came after 70 hours of flight testing and more than 200 take-offs and landings. “AirCar certification opens the way to mass manufacture of extremely efficient flying automobiles,” said Prof Stefan Klein, the project’s inventor.
