Production model of the PAL-V liberty flying car takes off

at the 14th edition of top marques (monaco’s supercar show), as well as the geneva motor show 2018, visitors witnessed the world debut of the road-driving and sky-soaring PAL-V ‘liberty’ flying car. described as ‘a car that flies, a plane that drives‘, the vehicle does not exceed the dimensions of a regular one, perfectly blending itself within everyday road traffic but also offering a new level of mobility. it hovers up above the ground using a wind-powered rotor that sources the principles of gyroplanes, in order to provide a safe and easy take-off.

robert dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V, stated: ‘the production model is the moment of truth. the moment where the wall between fiction and facts is torn down. a production model is the last stage in the R&D process before starting full production and delivery. all certifications required for commercialization will be granted on the basis of this production model. it is the pivotal point that separates from dreamers.’

the car features an interesting three-wheel design

aiming to launch the age of the flying car, the PAL-V ‘liberty’ was on show for the first time at top marques monaco 2017 and then the geneva motor show 2018, presenting its unique design that includes a three-wheel construction. with the ability to fly over traffic jams, rivers, lakes and even mountains, the vehicle enables you to get to your destination quicker, and without the need to go to a dedicated airstrip. even adverse weather conditions are no match for this innovation as users can drive past the bad conditions and then take-off.
