PAL-V Flying Car

The PAL-V 'Personal Air and Land Vehicle' is a two seat hybrid car and gyroplane made in Holland.

This unique vehicle runs on regular gasoline and can reach speeds of up to 180 km/h (112 mph) both on land and in the air.    Capacity: 2 persons - ROAD PERFORMANCE: Est. fuel economy: 12 km/l (28 mpg) - Range: 1200 km (750 miles) FLIGHT PERFORMANCE: Max. speed:97 kts (180 km/h) - Min. speed for level flight: 27 kts (50 km/h) - Take-off roll: 165 m (540 ft) - Landing roll: 30 m (100 ft) - Est fuel economy: 36 l/h (9,5 gph) - Range: 350-500 km (220-315 miles)    A PAL-V ONE flies exactly like a gyrocopter, which is the easiest and safest way of flying. Flying the PAL-V ONE in the USA requires a Sports Pilot License. In Europe a Recreational Pilot License (RPL) or a Private Pilot License (PPL) are required. Learning to fly the PAL-V ONE usually takes 20 to 40 hours of student-pilot lessons.        For more than a century man has dreamed of the freedom provided by a flying car. The ultimate vehicle to go wherever and whenever you want to, easily overcoming all sorts of barriers. Now you can leave home and fly-drive to almost any destination! Avoid traffic jams and cross lakes, fjords, rivers or mountain ranges like an eagle. Land on the other side and drive in your own vehicle to your final destination.
