Summary… * Machine-Made


The Dutch-made PAL-V Liberty is another that purports to be the first commercially available flying car.
Using the term “flying car” to describe whatever this is seems fairly inaccurate.
If anything, the PAL-V Liberty seems like a reasonably well-executed cross between a gyrocopter and a three-wheeled, Elio Motors-style vehicle.
When it’s in road-going mode, it’s around the size of a small car.
“Once full certification is granted in 2019,” PAL-V CEO Robert Dingemanse said in a statement, “we will hand over the keys of the PAL-V Liberty to our first customers.”

Opinion… * Man-Made


If anything, don’t talk about “flying cars” – most experts in this space hate the phrase – while eVTOL (electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing) is the preferred buzzword. #Transport #Trend
