AeroMobil 3.0 Flying Car

Just another flying car here. Though still a prototype, the AeroMobil 3.0 is an upgrade from the Slovakian company's pre-prototype 2.5, and has graduated to the flight-testing stage of bringing this inevitable feat of transportation to consumers' open roads and friendly skies. Give it, oh, I'd say 5 years. Not that I have a clue what the logistics of successfully testing, getting federal approval for, and manufacturing a fleet of flying cars is, but I'm still going with soup to nuts in 5 years.

The AeroMobil 3.0 says it can transform in seconds from an automobile to an airplane thanks to its incorporation of existing infrastructure for both vehicles. Even better, it uses standard gasoline, drives in traffic the same as any other car, and fits into a standard parking spot. Yeah, probably like the the Toyota Sequoia "fits" in the office garage spot next to your Chevy Aveo, but whatever. Driving an airplane to work and parking it like an asshole would still represent a great technological feat for mankind.

As an airplane, the AeroMobil should be able to take off from and land at any airport worldwide, as well as any grass strip or paved surface a few hundred meters long.

Version 3.0's body shell, wings, and wheels are composed of advanced composite material. Inside, drivers/pilots will find avionics equipment, autopilot features, and a parachute deployment system along with, like, a gas pedal and brake.
