Klein Vision gives cars wings
Ludovit Jedlicka, senior designer with Slovakian company Klein Vision Ltd, revealed details of its flying car to Shanghai Daily at the second China International Import Expo.
The flying car — called the AirCar — can be used both in the air and on the ground. With wings on both sides, it can quickly change from driving mode to flying mode.
The transformation is completed at the touch of a button.
Computers inside the car operate the system automatically and are able to lock the wings in the right position.
Jedlicka said the combination of car and plane was very hard to do. Weight was a significant issue.
"The flying car weighs 800 kilograms. Cars are usually very heavy, but planes can't be," he said.
Jedlicka the company was glad to have come to the second China International Import Expo and felt that the expo was well organized. Klein Vision Ltd regarded the expo as an important opportunity to enter the Chinese market.
