AeroMobil 5.0 AeroMobil Bratislava, Slovakia www.aeromobil.com Flying car company AeroMobil announced plans for its 4-seat eVTOL on March 21, 2018. “AeroMobil is an advanced engineering company that is commercializing a sophisticated flying car, combining real car and an aircraft in a single vehicle. AeroMobil aims to make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by helping to overcome traffic jams in large areas and by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel for medium distances or in areas with limited road infrastructure. Starting with a first commercial product now the ultimate future vision of the company is to offer Mobility as a Service using the best from the combination of the car, the plane and the computer.” “AeroMobil aims to lead the industry with the most comprehensive door-to-door flying car solution covering the first-to-last mile in all weather conditions, for short, medium and longer distances up to 700km [435 miles] in a single journey.” “The multi-product strategy means we can provide urban travel with the AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL and intra-city travel with the AeroMobil 4.0 STOL. Our strategy solves the limitations of alternative VTOL concepts which are tied to dedicated landing pods rather than also using the existing road infrastructure,” said Juraj Vaculik, co-founder and CEO of AeroMobil. “The AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL concept has two electrically driven rotors to ensure safe vertical take-off with horizontal thrust being provided by an electric powered rear mounted pusher propeller. It will seat four passengers providing similar comfort and user experience as next generation electric vehicles. Each occupant will have access to a personalised inflight experience, with flight or drive data and advanced communications and media to ensure occupants stay connected while in the air or on the road.” Key Features of AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL Vertical take-off and lift assistance motors on the tips of the wings for expanded flight performance and quality Adaptive wings that ensure maximum efficiency in flight, improving safety and maximising electric range Rear extension and control surface for enhanced flight control, stability and in-flight comfort Adaptive suspension geometry for smooth landing and take-off improving occupant comfort Battery package and drivetrain optimisation for fleet use to maximise utilisation in both urban and inter-urban use cases Resources: Search eVTOL news posts AeroMobile website Press Release: AeroMobil Unveils AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL Concept, AeroMobil, March 21, 2018 Article: Fly high with the uprise of flying cars from Slovakia, Utest, February 28, 2017 Article: Aeromobil’s flying car will go on sale in 2017, company says, CBC, March 15, 2015 Article: Flying car AeroMobil 3.0 is ready to rule the roads and the sky , Business Standard, October 15 2014 Photos: AeroMobil evolution (1990-2014) Internet Archive of AeroMobil Tags: AeroMobil, Lift + Cruise, Initial Design, 4 Passengers, Electric/Batteries, Autonomous
Bratislava, Slovakia-based AeroMobil s.r.o. was founded in 2010 to develop vehicles that can convert from street-legal automobiles to aircraft, though the AeroMobil design has been in development since 1990. The company flew its 3.0 short takeoff and landing (STOL) design in 2013 and announced its 4.0 production model in April 2017, capable of STOL operations from 650 ft (200 m) grass strips; the company is currently taking pre-orders for the vehicle. On March 21, AeroMobil unveiled its latest iteration of its flying car series: the “AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL is a concept for our future electric 4-seater flying taxi combining flight with driving capability. It will have vertical take-off and landing capability and incorporates pragmatic development approach and experience with our previous prototypes.” The AeroMobil 5.0 has two electrically driven propellers for VTOL with horizontal thrust being provided by an electric-powered rear-mounted pusher propeller. The company said that the production of the AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL model will follow the AeroMobil 4.0 STOL rollout, which will be available in a limited series to private owners around the world in 2020. The company said it expects the AeroMobil 5.0 VTOL concept to be available within the next seven to ten years, in line with the reality of building and scaling the infrastructure and regulation for personal transportation.
