PAL-V Liberty Flying Helicopter Car

Check out the PAL-V Liberty flying car!


(The first production flying car

Inspired by nature, engineered by men and evolved over time, the PAL-V Liberty is a groundbreaking product that inaugurates the age of the flying car.

Italy is known for its elegant and slick designs. This is the reason why the PAL-V Liberty is designed in collaboration with Italian design bureaus. Only the most beautiful and refined shapes and colors were used all in pursuit of perfection in shape.

At PAL-V, we aim for excellence. Therefore, we only use state of the art proven technology in our PAL-V Liberty. We have partnered with some of the leading manufacturers in the world to guarantee a flying car that meets the aviation standards.

(Via PAL-V.)

Science fiction fans are unable to resist the flying car idea. Take a look at the wonderful Heliocar from Jack Williamson's classic 1931 story The Prince of Space:

He read his story, standing in a busy street that rustled quietly with the whir of moving walks and the barely audible drone of the thousands of electrically driven heliocars which spun smoothly along on rubber-tired wheels, or easily lifted themselves to skimming flight upon whirling helicopters.
