In Slovakia, a flying car made the first intercity flight. Video

“Science fiction has become a reality,” says a press release from a Slovak company that has developed a prototype of a flying car called AirCar. The car flew about 100 kilometers from the city of Nitra to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.

In less than three minutes and at the touch of a button, the car's wings are unfolded. After that, the AirCar can fly at a speed of 170 km / h within a radius of 1000 kilometers and at an altitude of 2500 meters. It can accommodate two people weighing up to 200 kilograms, according to Le Parisien. On the ground, the wings can be removed to the side, and then the device takes on the appearance of a classic car. Equipped with a gasoline engine, it can be refueled at any gas station.

AirCar conducted “more than 40 hours of tests in the air, including 45-degree turns and stability tests,” the company said. The possible release date of the new product on the market or its price has not yet been reported. The creators have yet to conduct many tests.

Various sources have a very positive assessment of the flying car market in the coming years. However, the technical limitations associated with such flights, as well as the daily operating costs of this type of vehicle should limit their use in normal conditions, organized mainly by rich amateurs, experts say.
