Flying Car means a car flying in the air, the mind gets thrilled on hearing this. The discussion has been going on about this for many years. Many companies around the world have been claiming to make flying cars and have been coming in the news too. You must have also read and seen and heard it. But the biggest question was when will this flying car come!
There is good news for those who have wanted to fly in the air for a long time. A car that has the ability to fly on the road, as well as fly in the air, sounds quite exciting to think about but building it is equally challenging. However, now this dream is going to come true. A similar car has now completed a historic flight from one city to another.
This car is made by a company called Aircar and this car took off between the two international airports of Slovakia Nitra and Bratislava on 28 June. This flying car took only 35 minutes to cover the distance between the two airports. Not only this, this car turns into a flying car within just three minutes. This car is powered by a 160 horsepower BMW engine.
Flying Car Speed: 160 KMPH on the ground and 180 KMPH in the Air
Once filled with oil, this car can fly for about 1000 km at an altitude of 8200 feet. It is fitted with a fixed propeller and parachute. This car can fly in the air at a speed of 180 kmph. The company is planning to increase its speed to 300 kmph. This car has flown 40 hours so far. The car turned itself at 45 degrees during its flight. This car takes just two minutes and 15 seconds to fly. That’s the same time it takes to convert it from car to plane.
After this stupendous success, it is believed that the traffic map between cities will change in the coming years. That too when metropolitan cities around the world are battling with heavy traffic jams on the roads. Flying cars can reduce the pressure on the roads in the future and can also save travel time. Companies like Uber have already announced that they are working on a flying car. These cars will be used for traffic between one city to another in the coming times.
