Flying car prototype awarded airworthiness certificate

The flying car prototype is currently powered by a BMW-sourced engine producing 160 BHP and has a cruising speed of 190 km/h.

AirCar - the dual-mode car-aircraft prototype from Slovakian company Klien-Vision, has been awarded its airworthiness certificate by the Slovak Transport Authorities.

Stefen Klein, the vehicle's creator stated that with the certificate, the company is now one step closer to starting mass production of the flying car.

Klein-Vision has been testing the flying car prototype for years now. The vehicle's testing is said to be in line with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards. Last year, the flying car prototype even completed its first-ever inter-city flight, covering 1000 km in just 35-minutes.

The company claims that the prototype comes with foldable wings, allowing the vehicle to convert itself into a sports car in under 3 minutes.

The flying car prototype is currently powered by a BMW-sourced engine producing 160 BHP and has a cruising speed of 190 km/h. The vehicle has space for two passengers and is capable of flying at an altitude of just over 8000 feet.
