The world’s first commercially available flying car has landed at the Petersen Automotive Museum.
The idea of “flying cars” has always been a lofty, grand, and even sarcastic pipe dream used to describe a distant future, where absolutely anything is possible. But despite how impossible flying cars may seem, they are real, and a real flying car will be on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles until April 1.

The Aeromobil is the name of the flying car, and it is able to transition from a 7-foot wide car to a 30-foot wide aircraft in less than 3 minutes. On the ground, the Aeromobil can drive up to 100 mph, and get from 0-60 in 10 seconds with an estimated 600-mile driving range. In the air, it can cruise at 160 mph, climb at 1200 feet per minute, and fly for 460 miles, or 320 miles with a passenger.
The research and development that created the Aeromobil involved the talent of people who have worked with brands like Airbus, Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce Aviation, Formula 1 teams, BMW, Aston Martin, and McLaren. Next time you say “when we have flying cars,” know that that time is now.
