Nowadays companies all over the world are working to create alternative means of transport, from electric cars or electric bicycles to a completely new vehicle, a flying car. Rivals are trying as hard as they can to start producing flying cars as soon as possible as they understand that this will definitely be a breakthrough in transportation as flying cars aren’t afraid of traffic jams, they are faster than the bicycle and, if needed, one can use them as an ordinary car.
The largest flying cars-building companies, like Terrafugia, AeroMobil or PAL-V are planning to start the production of flying cars by 2017. Among these giants, there are a lot of smaller companies that would like to cut themselves a piece of pie. For example, Terrafugia already received around 100 pre-order requests from customers and plans to start production in 2017.
Another company, AeroMobil is planning to finish work on their car by 2017 and start producing it in 2017.
PAL-V, the company from the Netherlands already began accepting orders from people that are willing to buy their flying vehicle and expect the shipment to start in Spring, 2017.
These plans may seem very nice and promising, but companies may face difficulties in reaching their aim. Many companies announced the production of their cars earlier, but as we can’t see flying cars in the sky nowadays, these plans are still written on the paper, first of all because of the insufficient technical level that often leads to prototype crashes. Another major obstacle is the certification process that may last for years, thus not allowing companies to start the production.
