Who Designed It?
Stefan Klein, founder and head of the Department of Transport Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Slovakia is the brains behind the concept, which he has been tinkering with since 1989. He joined Vaculik and created AeroMobil in 2010. The first prototype was by Slovakia’s Aviation Authority certified in 2013, and the current 3.0 model is going through testing now.
Who Will Buy A Flying Car?
While it could certainly be a useful way to skip slow sections of the morning commute, a flying car could really come into it’s own in areas with limited infrastructure.
“[Self-driving] technology is coming to the car, but as an autopilot, it’s already there. There are already systems for taking off and landing automatically. These two technologies can work together,” ~ Vaculik
So are you going to start saving for one? Or are you worried about the safety of having cars zipping into the air at the touch of a button?
