A flying car that can reach heights of more than 8,000ft and speeds over 100mph is the dual-mode 'AirCar' craft, which can transform from a road vehicle into a plane in under three minutes, is now officially certified to fly after passing safety tests in Slovakia.
It was awarded this status after completing more than 200 take-offs and landings during 70 hours of rigorous flight testing to European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards.
AirCar's take-off and landing procedures were achieved even without the pilot's need to touch the flight controls.
The developers say a new production model is expected to be certified in 12 months.
No price details have been revealed for the futuristic vehicle, but it could be seen in the air and on the roads by next year at the latest. Full story and photos HERE
