The AeroMobil 5.0 is a concept four seat flying car designed for door-to-door flying. Two electrically driven propellers situated on its wing-tips supply vertical take-off and cruise mode thrust.

Based on the AeroMobil 3.0 and 4.0 models, the 5.0 is expected to employ a Rotax 912 four cylinder horizontally-opposed liquid and air-cooled piston aircraft engine with 75 kW 100 hp and a battery package. The wings pivot backwards when the vehicle is in its driving configuration. Flight range will be 700 km. The 3.0 test model included a ballistic parachute. Current versions are designed for a human pilot.

The AeroMobil 5.0 is intended for “wealthy supercar buyers and flight enthusiasts” to be used for door-to-door travel as a VTOL with highway driving capability. It will offer “Mobility as a service using the best from the combination of the car, the plane and the computer.”

On 8 May 2015 the AeroMobil 3.0 prototype crashed during a test flight at the Nitra Airport near Janíkovce, Slovakia. The aircraft entered a spin and the ballistic parachute was deployed. The pilot was sent to hospital by ambulance with back pain but was later released.

AeroMobil announced its plans for the AeroMobil 5.0, a four seat version and evolution of its earlier models, on March 21, 2018.
