【能飞的汽车来了,2017年上市?!】

AeroMobil近日展出了其飞行汽车,采用混合动力,有四座,在满油状况下能飞行700公里,不飞行时机翼可折叠入车身。但因其不属于直升式飞行器,飞行时还需约200米的跑道,好在可在草地上升降。该飞机汽车将于2017年上市,售价可能高达数十万欧元26B53B5B00000578-0-When_in_plane_mode_the_craft_is_powered_by_a_propeller-a-16_1426544201262 26B53B5F00000578-0-The_car_seats_two_although_the_pilot_will_need_a_licence_to_fly_-a-14_1426544201107 26B53B5200000578-0-The_firm_has_even_completed_the_interior_of_the_craft_and_says_i-a-15_1426544201109 26B53B5600000578-0-image-a-12_1426544201104

It has been a sci-fi dream for decades - a car that can simply take to the air to avoid traffic.

However, a Slovakian firm has said it has finally cracked the problem - and it will sell in it just two years.

The AeroMobil can fly 430 miles on a tank of petrol - and when its wings fold down, it'll fit into a normal parking space.

Aeromobil is a 'flying car' that can fit in a standard parking space, and could both take off and land at any airport in the world.

When in flight mode, it can go 430 miles, reaching 124mph - but can fold up its wings to travel on the road and fit in a single parking space.

Aeromobil is a 'flying car' that perfectly makes use of existing infrastructure created for automobiles and planes, and opens doors to real door-to-door travel,' the firm says.

When in its car configuration, it can fit into a standard parking space, and it also takes normal fuel pumped at every service station.

The latest version is the third generation of the craft.

'It is now finalised and has been in regular flight-testing program in real flight conditions since October 2014,' the firm said. 

At South By Southwest, Juraj Vaculik, co-founder and CEO of AeroMobil, spoke at a panel about the future of flying cars, predicting a world ahead in which these vehicles easily merge with existing transportation.

He says it will be on sale in 2017, and that the firm was also developing a self driving (and flying) version.

Tatiana Veber, an AeroMobil spokesman said: 'We have been developing the concept of a flying car since 1990.

'Our first model looked quite bizarre and it would have problems in the regular use.

'That was a signal to improve the concept of the flying car in a way to become an integral part of the regular road traffic.

'We got a positive feedback from several experts in avionics, which appreciated design and the technical solution of the process of transformation.

'The car is constructed to be fuelled at regular gas stations using the fuel for Rotax 912 ULS engine.'

AeroMobil says its third prototype is ready to be shown to the world this October 29th at the Pioneers Festival in Austria.

The firm has even completed the interior of the craft, and says it is undergoing advanced flight tests in Slovakia.

However, design is still not perfect- the wings fold into the back seat behind the driver when in car mode.

The firm has also released a video of it in action, driving through city streets then taking to the air.

'Aeromobil 3 is stylish, comfortable for both the driver and passenger, and exceptionally combines the performance of a sports car with qualities of an 'ultralight',' it says.
