World first flying car name PAL-V made by a Dutch company has been got approval to run on the road. It can run up to 160 kmph on the road.
According to a report in Times Now, the European Union has approved the Urukku car for use on the road. The car is made by PAL-V, a Dutch-based Urukku car manufacturer. PAL-V has been working on this car project since 2012.
The major hurdle for the carmaker was the lack of specific road or air traffic rules for such vehicles.
Robert Dingemansi, CEO of PAL-V, said it was a big puzzle to make a policy on the Urukku car. It needs to be fixed whether it will follow the rules of a car or flying car.
Liberty is basically a two-seater tricycle. It can walk on the road and fly in the sky with a fan. However, in order to operate this flying car a license to operate an aircraft is required. It can fly at 120 miles per hour.
One tank full of fuel can go up to 310 miles. Due to the propeller in it, it works like a helicopter. During landing, the propeller folds and its tail becomes suitable for walking on the road.
Robert Dingemansi said the hybrid, which is a combination of cars and flying cars is an important field. In this case, PAL-V is the first but many more organizations will come up.
Researchers have seen an increase in interest and demand for such flying cars due to the Coronavirus epidemic. The risk of infection is much lower as the two can go.
Initially, PAL-V is releasing a limited edition of 90 cars. The price maybe $5,63,515.
