First Flight For Aeromobil Flying Car

Aeromobil, a Slovakian company that has been working on a flying-car design since the 1990s, flew its prototype for the first time, in October. The online video shows a somewhat shaky takeoff and a low pass above the runway, but also reveals a sleek auto design that can maneuver nimbly in and out of normal parking spots. The airplane that flew is the third-generation prototype. It burns mogas in a 100 hp Rotax 912 engine and, in its airplane configuration, has a top speed of 124 mph and a range of 430 miles. The wings fold and unfold with the touch of a button from the cockpit.
