Engineers at AeroMobil in Slovakia have developed a special edition of the company’s personal aerial vehicles targeted exclusively at the rapidly growing personal air transportation market in China. AeroMobil has unveiled two Sky Dragon roadable aircraft or flying car concepts, specifically designed for China, based on the AeroMobil 4.0 short takeoff and landing (STOL) and 5.0 vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft.
AeroMobil is pioneering the design and commercialization of flying cars, developing technology to produce a range of vehicles for short take-off and landing (STOL) and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). Its vehicles feature lightweight technology and full electric power on the ground. The first production vehicle, the AeroMobil 4.0 features a deployable fixed wing. Future vehicles will offer VTOL capabilities, as showcased in the 5.0 concept. (Read more about AeroMobil’s 5.0 aircraft design and the growing VTOL market.)
“We believe China has a vital role to play in the adoption of personal aviation and flying cars,” AeroMobil CEO and Co-founder Juraj Vaculik says. “China’s foresight to invest in infrastructure to support its goals will ensure it continues to be one of the most influential economies in the 21st Century. Flying cars will add to the array of personal transportation options available, offering comfortable, safe travel that dramatically reduces journey times and the environmental impact of intra-urban travel.”
