PAL-V is ready to become the world's first manufacturer of flying cars for three-wheeled gyrocopter type products that can be boarded by two people. The vehicle has certification to drive on the road and in the sky.

"This kind of dream has been around 100 years ago, when the first plane was discovered, people are already thinking what if I use also drive on the road," said PAL-V sales head Markus Hess, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

To drive this flying car, the owner requires a driving license and a pilot license. To this day the main competitor of PAL-V is AeroMobil 3.0 based in Slovakia which is ready to hit the market this year and Czech-based GyroDrive.

The final PAL-V assembly will begin in October this year and the company is trying to become the first manufacturer to market a commercial flying car.

PAL-V uses two 100-horsepower engines that use unleaded gasoline. The futuristic mode flies 400-500 kilometers at an altitude of 3,500 meters. When driving on the road, PAL-V has a top speed of about 170 kilometers per hour.

By 2019, the company is targeting to produce about 50 to 100 units, then will double production to hundreds of units by 2020. But the flying car is not cheap, PAL-V Liberty will sell for 499,000 euros, while PAL-V's cheapest version to be produced in the future will be sold 299,000 euros.

"Initially, let's make a gyrocopter that can be piloted," Hess said.

The company has 40 to 50 employees that realize the propeller makes it difficult for vehicles to drive around the corner. They then equip it with a button to fold the propeller downward like a bat wing.

The company insists PAL-V is not a helicopter that uses engines to propel propellers, but a gyroplane in which the propellers rotate along the airflow. Even if both engines stop, the propellers will still spin.

"Even if you drive at zero speed, this structure will continue to spin and you will not fall down," Hess said.
