"The machine did very well," Klein said of the flight. The journey took about 25 minutes, which takes three times longer by car on the highway. However, the machine is not primarily intended for use in Slovakia or in densely populated Central Europe with a developed transport infrastructure. During the development of AirCar, Klein already expected the greatest interest from countries where road infrastructure is not developed and at the same time it is necessary to move longer distances.
The designer was also in the development of the first Slovak flying car Aeromobil. According to him, AirCar differs significantly from this type not only in appearance, but also in the way of transformation from aircraft to car. The transition from an airplane to a car normally used in road traffic takes about two and a half minutes.
It is not yet clear when it will be possible to order an AirCar. The first prototype must complete the mandatory 50 hours of flight tests, and then Klein prepares to build the second prototype with a redesigned design and more powerful propulsion, which will allow a significant increase in cruising speed. It will already be ready for international certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
