High Hopes: Dutch Company Launches Flying Car at Geneva Show

Tuesday, 06 March 2018 08:38 AM

BREDA, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch company PAL-V is unveiling the first production model of the Liberty, a three-wheeled, two-seat car and gyroplane rolled into one, at the Geneva motor show.

CEO Robert Dingemanse told The Associated Press recently at a test flight in the Netherlands that "Flying cars have been in movies many, many times and they will be available next year."

The PAL-V is one of several flying cars in development around the world such as The Transition, a folding wing two-seater being developed by U.S.-based Terrafugia, and an all-electric vertical take-off and landing jet being developed by German startup Lilium.

Carlo van de Weijer, director of Eindhoven's Technical University's Smart Mobility program, doesn't see flying cars as much more than a niche market.
