Guessing you may need parts for your flying car!

Article from The Sunday Times.



Is this the ultimate jam-buster? Instead of sitting in tiresome queues, just fly over them. A new version of the AeroMobil flying car is set to be unveiled this week.

When in car mode the AeroMobil 3.0 is designed to fit into a normal parking space, as the wings fold into the passenger seat located behind the driver. When the wings are deployed, the aircraft is capable of flying 430 miles on a single tank of standard unleaded. It has a top speed of 100mph on land and 124mph in the air. The AeroMobil 2.5, its predecessor, made its first flight last year; the updated version has undergone design tweaks to strengthen its body and improve its aerodynamics and is undergoing test flights in Slovakia, where the company is based.
