Amazing !! Even cars can fly

Even cars can fly

car fly

This is an amazing video of testing a Flying car PAL-V (Personal Air And Land Vehicle). PAL-V is actually a Dutch Company who are developing a road-able aircraft, PAL-V one. The exterior of this car is designed by C. Klok and first flight testing was done in March 2010. PAL-V has made only one unit of this car till now and they are still testing it.

They are taking this car for road and flying test. This car has a tricycle undercarriage with relatively large wheels. The PAL-V in flight is an gyro-copter, a pusher propeller provides forward thrust at the rear of the fuselage and a free-spinning rotor works to lift it up. Twin boom-mounted tail-fins provide directional stability. Somehow it works both like a helicopter and a plane. It does not need any special runways or roads to take off and for landing. It makes a noise like helicopter. We have a view from inside the cabin as well. It looks very amazing to fly high in a car. The interior is designed as cockpit. You will feel like you are flying a small aircraft. It lands very smoothly and requires a short track to stop. After successful flying test the road test is being done on this car. On the ground, the propeller and rotor are stopped and power is diverted to the wheels, allowing it to travel as a three-wheeled car. After closing everything it becomes a tricycle undercarriage. It has an amazing balance and grip on the road. At a time 2 persons can sit in this car and this car runs at a top speed of 180km/h on land and in air, and a maximum takeoff weight is 910kg. It gets power from a 160 KW flight certified gasoline engine.

Almost all the tests have been done on this car and it has passed all of those and now the company are seeking funds to to develop the type for production. If we talk about the price then it costs estimated about $300,000 for one unit. I believe in near future we will see such cars flying in the sky and running on the roads. This technology will make our journey very easy and smooth. This will save our time but then lot more other things will have to be taken care of such as traffic in the sky. But anyways this is the one of the amazing inventions by human.

Thanks for watching this video and i hope you like it and would love to own one.
