AeroMobil Planning on Launching Its Highly-Anticipated Flying Car in 2017

By: | March 18th, 2015

We have been covering AeroMobil’s flying car on Industry Tap for quite some time now, and each version of the vehicle seems to get more impressive.

Now, the company has announced it is planning to officially launch its flying car in 2017, not to mention plans for an automated flying car within the next 10 years.

Obviously, people are very excited about the prospect of owning the 2-seat transforming vehicle, which can convert from a car into a plane in seconds and can travel at speeds up to 124 mph.

AeroMobil 3.0 is approximately 20 feet long and 7.5 feet wide and is designed for trips of around 500 miles without having to switch vehicles, according to its creators.

Those willing to ante up for the flying car will surely pay a pretty penny in 2017 but will only be able to operate it after getting certified as a pilot.

On the other hand, you can forget being a pilot and simply wait for the automated version, which is sure to come sooner rather than later.

“Maybe 10 years from now, it needs to be automated,” said Stefan Vodocz, AeroMobil’s chief communications officer, according to CNET. “With an algorithm, it would be managed much better by a computer than by man.”
