Considered to be the perfect hybrid between a luxury sports car and a lightweight aircraft, AeroMobil’s revolutionary vehicle is set to wow investors at Top Marques Monaco – the most exclusive supercar show in the world. Designed as a solution for gridlocked highways, regions with poor road infrastructure, and super-commuters traveling medium distances, the AeroMobil would have an almost instant impact – especially in overpopulated cities.
AeroMobil believes a flying car is simply an extension of our current transportation system – where reliance on cars and planes needs a well-overdue upgrade. After unveiling a prototype two-and-half years ago in Vienna, the advanced engineering company has made numerous improvements to both the overall design as well as their intuitive autopilot software. From safety features to propulsion systems, everything centered around getting the stamp of approval from both auto and aeronautics regulatory agencies.
Powered by hybrid propulsion, the fully-functional four-wheeled car/aircraft will empower drivers to choose the optimal mode of transportation. With a mission to “make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally-friendly,” AeroMobil is capable of avoiding congestion and bolstering air travel – a more eco-friendly alternative.
AeroMobil’s First Commercialized Vehicle
Based in Bratislava – the capital of Slovakia – AeroMobil has a very clear plan of attack:
“Our company has a robust and detailed project timing which should enable us to commercialize AeroMobil in 2017,” Juraj Vaculik, Co-founder and CEO said in a recent press release. “The current two-seater flying roadster will be our first product in a series of innovative vehicles. It is planned that the technologies and innovations that form the basis of the AeroMobil flying roadster will support a family of products in the future, allowing the move into high volumes of production.”
AeroMobil’s flying roadster concept was first brought to live back in 1989 by Slovak designer Stefan Klein. After forming a partnership with Vaculik and starting AeroMobil, the innovative design came to fruition with the help of European mechanical and aeronautical engineering concept. Whether it’s carbon fiber, lightweight materials, power density, or intuitive flight control software, the AeroMobil has changed with the times and is now ready for its April 20th (2017) unveiling at Top Marques Monaco in Brussels.
New Investment Partner
The company recently announced private investor Patrick Hessel, CEO of C2i, backing AeroMobil as it moves from concept to working prototype. C2i is a manufacturer of composite parts in the aerospace and automotive industries and has worked closely with AeroMobil over the past few years.
“I am impressed by the advanced degree of engineering design and simulation at AeroMobil. For the past two years, AeroMobil 3.0 has demonstrated that it already had the capability to fly and drive. My investment enables the company to move into production on the latest model and prototypes. The team, which has come together at AeroMobil, is absolutely unique and has enormous potential to achieve global change in passenger transport,” Hessel said.
AeroMobil is an advanced engineering company that is commercializing a sophisticated flying car, combining a luxury sports car and a light aircraft in a single vehicle. AeroMobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by helping to overcome traffic jams in large areas and by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distances or in areas with limited road infrastructure.
