The PAL-V Liberty, a Dutch flying car, is officially road legal.

Last summer, the PAL-V proudly announced that it is ready to hit the road with the Liberty, a vehicle that can both drive and fly. The time has come and Liberty, which has been in development since 2012, has received the necessary approval. Testing and work on approval of the serial version began in February this year. There is a chance that soon this special creation can be found on the public road. In the coming months, PAL-V life tests will be carried out throughout the country.

The next step will be to issue a permit for the use of airspace. PAL-V expects to achieve it in 2022. In general, a long way for the company, but there is something in it.

Petrol engine with 100 hp provides a boost for movement, while it is able to accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 9 seconds and is able to reach a maximum speed of 160 km / h. The 200 ok motor drives the rotor blades for flight. In the air, the PAL-V accelerates to 180 km / h.

Although it will still be a long time before the PAL-V can actually drive and fly, the outcome is slowly becoming apparent. Last summer, the number of orders reached 100 units, while the flying car will cost at least about 500,000 euros.
