A Flying Car To Debut At Farnborough Airshow, The Show Of Many Firsts

Flying Car To Debut At Farnborough Airshow

Think you know all about the Farnborough International Airshow 2018? Did you know the aerospace and defense trade show will also host the PAL-V Liberty and its aviation debut?  PAL-V Liberty is the “world’s first flying car production model”. Call it the offspring of a car and a helicopter, if you may. But, the Dutch makers of this futuristic plane would rather describe it as a “gyroplane”.

The PAL-V: Here’s Why It’s One Of The Top Attractions At FIA 2018

  • Unlike a helicopter rotor, the flying car’s blades are not powered by an engine. So that pretty much rules out the possibility of the plane being a helicopter.
  • It is the wind that powers the blades of the PAL-V.
  • As long there is airflow, these blades rotate and act like an open parachute.

The icing on the cake is that the flying car is getting close to completion. PAL-V is currently undergoing the last step of the certification process: compliance demonstration.

The Flying Car: The Official Word On It

It takes a lot of testing to prove that the PAL-V Liberty complies with the regulations,” says Mike Stekelenburg, PAL-V’s Chief Engineer. He explains using a proven technology, and not one requiring new regulations.  It “enables a realistic and imminent first product delivery date.

 In the words of CEO Robert Dingemanse, “The production model is the moment of truth. The moment where the wall between fiction and facts is torn down.” He also notes “Once full certification is granted in 2020, we will hand over the keys of the PAL-V Liberty to our first customers.

The PAL-V: Here’s What Else You Should Know

  • Pioneer clients are already gaining experience at flying schools. The word is that they are preparing for the deliveries, slated to begin in 2020.
  • The Farnborough Air Show 2018 marks the first time that the PAL-V Liberty is present at an airshow and in the UK.
