Klein Vision AirCar – transformation from a sports car into an airplane in three minutes

Klein Vision AirCar – transformation from a sports car into an airplane in three minutes

Engineers and car and aero plane enthusiasts alike dream of the flying car. Many inventions have been made in this regard over the past few decades, but none of the prototypes has made it to series production. It seems that the Slovak company Klein Vision is not far away to reach this goal with its AirCar.

The fifth-generation flying car designed by Professor Stefan Klein completed end of October two 1500’ AGL flights at Piestany airport in Slovakia. The model safely achieved two full airport patterns, including two takeoffs and landings. Now Klein Vision has begun 50h flight test-program in a bid to certificate the AirCar.

Cars can be heavy, but planes must be light. The two-seat model weights 1,100kg and can carry an additional load of 200kg per flight. Powered by a BMW 1.6l engine, the car-plane has an effective power output of 140HP. The estimated travel range of AirCar is 1,000km and flight consumption of 18 l/h.
