Boasting on its website about being the first company to develop a flying car, Pal V indeed established a breakthrough project on the automobile market. The Liberty should be made available in 2019.

The general aspects of the Pal V Liberty

The idea of creating such a vehicle originated from two different aspects: some engineer’s dream to be able to avoid traffic by hovering over it and the display of such engines in movies on TV or on the big screen. The Pal V Liberty flying car will seat 2 people, will have folding helicopter blades and will use a gasoline-powered engine. Its maximum speed is 160 km/h.

The different types of hovering cars to hit the automobile market

Next to the Pal V’s Liberty at the annual motor show is a concept designed by AUDI, Italdesign and Airbus called the Pop.up Next. These two devices are not alike because the latter is a mixture of an autonomous auto with a passenger drone. Terrafugia also released a model similar to the Pal V Liberty in 2006 but it is still under development. The Moller Skycar M400 and the SkyRider X2R are comparable but they never had a successful flight.

Several prototypes of hovering vehicles have been made

The first example of a flying car was invented by the Soviet Armed forces in 1942. Their engine was more of a gliding tank called the Antonov A-40 which failed to fly on its own. On the other hand, the Urban Aeronautics' X-Hawk was an aircraft designed to carry out rescue and utility operations.

Drivers should be able to fly from their Pal V Liberty in 2019

While not really falling into the airborne car category, the Pal V Liberty is about to be the first one to be commercialized on the automobile market. The price is expected to be between 10,000 and 20,000 euros ($12,000-$25,000) for the pilot training only and the vehicle itself will be from 300,000 to 500,000 euros.
