Aeromobil 3.0: Commuter’s Dream of Flying Car Arrives

The Aeromobil 3.0, a production-ready flying car was unveiled on October 29, 2014 at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna, Austria. Although, the car was first envisioned by designer Štefan Klein that dates back to 1990, this latest version was design and built in less than a year after the Aeromobil 2.5 prototype made its first flight.

The Aeromobil transforms car to plane by unfolding its wings from behind the cockpit. When collapsed the wings fit alongside a boom which houses the rear-mounted propeller shaft, and serves as the mounting point for the flying car’s tail.
