A Dutch vehicle manufacturer has initiated the commercial sale of the world’s first flying car, the PAL-V Liberty. Available in two varieties, the PAL-V Liberty Sport and the Liberty Pioneer are two-person three-wheelers and are capable of flying at speeds of up to 112mph.
Whilst the Sport is the cheaper of the two with the base model starting at $400,000, the Pioneer is priced at $600,000.
PAL-V states that it takes 10 minutes to switch from driving to flying mode and in the air you may travel for 310 miles on a full tank.
The PAL-V Liberty has two distinct attributes that differentiate it from other flying vehicle concepts. The first is that the lift is created by a wind-powered rotor so that the car has the ability to float in the air, whilst the second unique feature is the three-wheel design and the soft-tilting motion in curves.
