We all had that dream where we can fly in our cars as they do in sci-fi movies, but can we really do that? We have finally got the answer and it’s the latest AirCar (V5). The latest generation flying car that transforms from road vehicle into air vehicle in less than 3-minutes. Useful for leisure and self-driving journeys, and also as a commercial taxi service, the dual-mode transformation vehicle can go from driving to flying mode with the click of a button.

AirCar has been conceived as a shape, evocating dynamic, and attractive form predominantly built from an advanced composite material. In the car mode, the object generates downforce using spoiler and elevator pitch whereas in the aircraft mode the entire surface generates lift. Lift body concept includes future development for the spacious interior and for the variety of models: three and four-seaters, twin-engine, and amphibious version.

AirCar is composed of several functional units. Its aerodynamic fuselage provides enough space for the passengers and, at the same time, contributes to better lift characteristics during the flight.  Among advanced technologies are retractable wings, folding tail surfaces, parachute deployment system, etc. The folding tail surfaces contribute to better longitudinal stability and take-off characteristics, just like in a conventional aircraft. However, in the car mode, a retracted tail results in a more compact size.
