Listen Now: Flying Car
The future is here; and it’s come in the form of a flying car.
At a Monaco car show last week the company Aeromobil unveiled its version of the flying car. The light framed plane has insect like retractable wings that can fold back and is boosted by a hybrid engine and rear propeller.
The flying car will be available to pre-order over the next couple of months but there are a few qualifications you will need to make. First you will need a drivers and pilots license in order to legally operate the car. Second, a hefty bank account. The flying car comes with a price tag of $1.3 to $1.6 million. It also has a driving range of 435 miles and a top speed of 99 miles per hour. Once in the air it can cruise for about the same distance and it takes about three minutes to transform from car to plane.
