The Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory and Delft University engineers are the developers of the first prototype flying car that can allowed anyone to travel on both land and air traffic.

Robert Dingemanse, CEO and co-founder of PAL-V commented: “We are very proud to announce this successful maiden flight of the PAL-V and we now invite investors to create the future with us. We know there is a lot of interest for the PAL-V. Prior to announcing these test flights, we were already approached on a daily basis by potential customers and dealers wanting to be part of this exciting project.”

PAL-V Flying Range
350 km (220 miles) to 500 km (315 miles) - It depends on the type and pay load.

PAL-V Driving Range
1200 km (750 miles)

PAL-V Speed Range (Land and Air)
180 km/h (110 miles/h)

The first flying car runs on gasoline and alternate version that uses biodiesel or bio-ethanol. The first prototype car has a three wheeled vehicle that joined the comfort of a car with the physical appearance of a motorcycle, and later on I think they will developed 4-wheeled vehicle.

Government in the US and in Europe has already funded the programs for infrastructure of ‘digital freeways’ to provide safe corridors using GPS technology ( the technology is to allow personal air traffic to grow safely).
