On
the ground the vehicle drives like a sports car. Within minutes its
rotor is unfolded and its tail is extended: then it is ready to take off
thanks to the advanced gyrocopter technology.

With these
successful test results it is proven that it is not only possible to
build a flying car but also that it can be done within existing
international rules for both flying and driving.

Having passed this important milestone the company is now inviting investors to join them in creating the future.

The
next step will be the design of the first commercial production model
of the PAL-V, and first deliveries are expected in 2014.

For 100
years people have dreamed of a flying car, and many attempts have been
made to realize this dream, but now it has truly become a reality.
