PAL-V flying car makes debut flight


From a distance it looks like a
vehicle built for the road, albeit a slightly unusual one. But on a
straight stretch of tarmac or grass this machine transforms, giving it
the ability to take to the skies. This flying car is made by Dutch
company PAL-V, or Personal Air and Land Vehicle

The top speed is the same on the ground as in the air, around 180 kilometres an hour, or 110 miles an hour.

This configuration is known a
gyrocopter, and the company says it's quiet, easy to fly and safe.
Before taking the controls customers must get their private pilot's
license. But PAL-V hopes to attract buyers beyond weekend flying
enthusiasts
