Practically, we are in the phase of going beyond the technology known as Omega. In this phase, people started inventing Nano electronics, gizmo and other scientifically approved technology concepts. Among these concepts, flying cars is the one.
We see Aeroplanes flying high in the sky which was the most surprising tech development during 1800s. Now, same technologies are used to make highly sophisticated drones in way smaller size. With this tremendous change, people now are waiting for the very first flying car that could rule the kingdom of transportation.
Flying Cars Concept [in Movies]
The very first flying car we saw in movies was in ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ in 1968. After that, simultaneously, we were able to see such flying cars in ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’, ‘Grease’, ‘Blade Runner’, ‘Back to the Future Series’, ‘Repo Man’, ‘The Fifth Element’, ‘Judge Dredd’ and ‘Flubber’ till 1900s.
After 2000, movies like ‘Men in Black 2’, ‘Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets’ and ‘Dragonball Evolution’ featured flying cars. These movies gave an idea of making, designing and developing the new era of flying car concepts.
Developed Flying Cars Models
AeroMobil 3.0 is the refined and improvised version of its previous designs. Aeromobil started its journey since 1990, with the design of first Aeromobil. After that, two other variants; Aeromobil 2.0 and Aeromobil 2.5 were tested.
AeroMobil is the perfect existing flying car with all features similar to normal car. It uses same fuel, could be driven as car, and is fit for city drive. Also it can easily land and take off in grass road too. This particular prototype is made up of composite material which enables it to give better performance.
One prototype built within 10 months; was unveiled and tested in Vienna during Pioneers Festival.
CarPlane is the first flying car model with certification of road driving. This is because of its design. It is designed so well that it could pass through high traffics as well as the looks is similar to sports car. It’s expanding and shrinking flaps and rear wings is the major feature that made this car better version of other competitors. Company also claims this car to be more fuel efficient, noise canceller and better grip over road.
CarPlane is designed, developed and tested in Germany. As it is certified by AutoBahn, we can expect good build quality and performance. Company have not yet stated the actual price and availability to market; but we surely can hope to get it sooner.
The TF-X is early bird, which is being developed after the model Transition. This model is yet to be developed. Company decided the actual production date to be within 8-12 years.
The TF-X model’s specification and build material is not disclosed yet. Company is focusing on making it with the mission to cover the distance of around 500 miles with hot fuel.
What features are essential in Flying Cars?
Having flying cars doesn’t do a thing when it is not featured with some good aspects. Here are some essential features that is must for flying cars:
- Hover Capacity
Flying Cars must include the feature of hovering like helicopters do. With this feature, car could land where there is no availability of road or landing ways.
Flying cars must have the feature equivalent or better than what we get in aeroplanes. Speed counts!
Flying Cars must be equipped with safety measures like emergency landing gear, parachute, and also adaptability to change into normal car faster!
- Auto Pilot
Like of flying jets, flying cars also should have auto pilot feature. This enables luxurious feature similar to self-navigation.
