It's proven, the flying car wasn't a fiction anymore

In modern times like today, efforts to realize the human desire to fly, especially by using a car, are not something extraordinary, because many companies from all over the world have done it. And some time ago we had ever talked about the Aeromobil, a flying car developed by a Slovakian inventor named Stefan Klein.

As reported by CNN, recently there's flying car called the AirCar Prototype 1 has completed its first intercity test flight of the same Slovakian inventor. This future flying car was designed and developed through his company, KleinVision, by using four wheels, propellers and the unique foldable wings with the switchblade-style.

Not only that, the Slovakian flying car also has a telescopic tail that allows the car to turn into a 'land jet' in just three minutes. As reported by the New York Post, Stefan Klein, the Slovakian AirCar inventor and CEO of Klein Vision as well, said in the trials the sophisticated flying car was successful in running on two-mode experiment (it can drive on downtown roads after flying).

Reportedly, the vehicle had carried out 142 flight tests and this time, it traveled as far as (8,200 feet or about 2,500 meters) from the international airport in Nitra to the international airport in Bratislava by total flight time about 35 minutes in the air. The AirCar uses a 160 hp BMW engine and has a top airspeed of 118 mph. In the future it will be upgraded to a 300 hp engine which is claimed to be capable of run up to 186 mph.

Reportedly, in the future the Slovakian company is would be developing a 3-4 seater and amphibious models that can take off or land on the water surfaces. Unfortunately, the pricing has not been announced yet, but the cost of the prototype development was over US$ 2.3 million or around Rp.33 billion.
Considering the high price, in our opinion, it would be better if sophisticated vehicles such as the AirCar were projected to be used as the public transportation facilities that could be accessed by anyone like a taxi is used today. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SORCES | KLEINVISION | CNN | NEWYORK POST | BBC ]
