The Slovakian based company called AeroMobil has officially unveiled the third generation of its flying car, named suggestively the 3.0.
Mankind is not that far away from a future when flying cars will be all around us and we will forget all about that infernal traffic jams, of speeding tickets, holes in the asphalt and so on. But before this will happen, we will have to make a few steps into this direction, and a very important one has been recently made by a company based in Slovakia, which is called AeroMobil.
The guys from AeroMobil are looking to making the dream come true with its third generation of the concept which can be transformed from a car to an airplane, and vice versa. The model in question has an overall length of 6 meters and it stands at 2.24 meters wide when used as a car, while as an airplane, the width of the model is 8.32 meters.
The brand new AeroMobil 3.0 has been created from composite materials and it even has autopilot and a parachute deployment system. The model is also fitted with a beefy suspension system which is allowing the pilot / driver to take off and land on rough terrains and thanks to the variable angle of attack of the wings, the model can be aired in just a few hundred meters.
Power to the impressive AeroMobil 3.0 is being provided by a Rotax 912 four-cylinder naturally aspirated and water cooled engine, which is running on regular gasoline. Top speed as a car stands at 100 mph (160 km/h) and as an airplane it can reach 124 mph (200 km/h). In car mode, the model is burning 8L / 100km of fuel and in airplane mode is consumes 15 liters / hour. Unfortunately there is no news at the moment for its availability.
