In Austria yesterday, Oct. 29, the AeroMobil 3.0 took flight over the crowds at the Pioneers Festival. The flight of the AeroMobil 3.0 was no ordinary flight, as it actually drove to itself to takeoff. Yes, the AeroMobil is actually a flying car.
Created in Slovakia, this new vehicle has a top speed in the air of 124+ mph and a range of up to 430 miles. On the road, it can reach a top speed of 100+ mph and has a range of 540 miles. Powering the AeroMobile on the road and in the air is a 100 hp, four-cylinder Rotax 912 engine.

If you plan on driving the AeroMobil on the road, the wings can be folded in, allowing it to drive just like any car. If it’s the skies that you’re aiming for, the wings unfold with the push of a button as the flying car preps itself for takeoff. Controls in the cockpit are similar to what you would find in most aircrafts: avionics equipment, autopilot and an advanced parachute deployment system.
Be sure to watch the video above, uploaded to YouTube Oct. 29 by AeroMobil, to see the AeroMobile in action.
