Turkish air car was able to take off 10 meterSeptember 16, 2020
Potentially, the Gezeri air car is able to rise 2000 meters above the ground.
The Turkish company Baykar has published a video of the tests of its latest development – the Cezeri aeromobile. During the pilot flight, the 230-kilogram structure was able to rise 10 meters above the ground. At the same time, the manufacturer claims that the aeromobile is designed for flights at an altitude of two thousand meters.
Cezeri completed its first successful test flight: it was able to get off the ground thanks to eight electric motors. Moreover, the first tests were carried out using a safety cable – but then it was unfastened, giving the airmobile freedom. So far, the device is designed to carry only one passenger, but in the future the number of seats will be increased. Baykar also intends to release a cargo version intended, among other things, for courier services.
Potentially, Cezeri is able to climb two thousand meters into the sky, reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour and cover distances of 70-80 kilometers.
Baykar, founded in the mid-80s, designs and manufactures drones, including military ones. However, examples are known when the creation of aeromobiles is not carried out by specialized companies, but by automakers. For example, in early 2020, Porsche patented a flying electric vertical takeoff vehicle. Judging by the patent images, the device will be equipped with four large propellers, two of which are responsible for maneuvering, and two more for vertical takeoff and landing.
Toyota, which has spent nearly $ 400 million on a flying taxi, is working in the same direction. This amount was invested in the Joby Aviation project to develop a four-seater aircraft: it will be able to accelerate to 322 kilometers per hour and fly 241 kilometers on a single charge.
