Don’t you ever wish your car could just convert into a plane and fly over all those vehicles stuck in the half a kilometre long traffic jam ? Or, you are late for a meeting and the route to your office is highlighted in red on Google Maps, you wish you could just fly to your office to make it on time. Well, this wish of yours could come true soon. Slovakian company AeroMobil has unveiled the third generation of its flying car which is currently undergoing testing in real flight conditions.

The AeroMobil 3.0 eats only a few seconds  of your precious time to make the transition from a car to an airplane and vice versa. It has an overall length of six meters and is 2.24 meters in width when used as a car while as an airplane with the collapsible wings it measures 8.32 meters in width.

 

The AeroMobil 3.0 is made from composite materials as well as avionics equipment, a parachute deployment system and autopilot – all of which the creators say will probably be implemented in the final version. Thanks to a variable angle of attack of the wings, it takes “just a few hundred meters” to take-off while the beefy suspension allows the driver/pilot to take-off and land on rougher terrains.
