Is it a Car? Is it a Plane? The PAL-V Liberty Ushers In the Age of the Jetsons

Description

A Dutch-made flying car called the PAL-V Liberty aims to offer drivers the complete freedom to choose when to hit the road and when to take to the air. It went on display at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday. The three-wheel vehicle doubles as a gyrocopter, deploying fully-retractable rotors. The PAL V Liberty will use one engine for road driving and a separate one for flying. It's actually certified to fly under the rules of both the EASA in Europe and the FAA in the U.S., and complies with road safety regulations. PAL-V hopes the car will take-off, once it secures full certification in 2019.

  • Geneva 2018 Car Premieres - Pal-V Liberty

    The world’s first commercial flying car was presented in Geneva this year. The flying car is called the Liberty and PAL-V, a UK-founded Dutch firm, says the car-planehelicopter-thing is a historic breakthrough in the evolution of flying cars. It's not exactly a jet fuel powered car but a three-wheeled flying contraption and the rotors do not go up automatically, rather, there's some manual labour involved. However, the transformation is a quick one and in just 5 to 10 minutes you're all set to take to the sky. The Liberty gets its flying power from a pair of Rotax aircraft engines and has been designed to comply with both road and air regulations in Europe and the U.S. On the road, the PAL-V liberty makes just 100 hp and can travel up to 161 km/h. in flight mode, it can hit a max speed of 180 km/h and has 200 hp. It can transport up to 2 people.
