    The AeroMobil 3.0 is the latest prototype flying car that its makers hope will revolutionise the transport industry. The upgraded model has significant improvements to the previous prototype, with a top groundspeed of 200 kph and a flight travel range of about 700 kilometres. Ben Gruber reports.

    This flying car looks pretty damn cool in both flight and road modes, but especially when it opens up like a transformer. After being certified by the Slovak Federation of Ultra-Light Flying, the AeroMobil 3.0 has started final regular flight-testing this month.

    According to the company, it's very close to the final product now.

    The AeroMobil 3.0 is not designed to be a car replacement, of course. It's made for suburban aviation enthusiasts who want reduced costs and being able to store their flying machines in their garages (just like the SkyRunner flying car is made for farmers who need to quickly cover long distances over rugged terrain.) So instead of having a Cessna at the airfield or some ultra-light airplane and a car to move it around, you have this at home and you go to the airfield anytime you want to fly.

    I like the idea of being able to hop around the country using this thingamajig. A flying road trip of sorts. I would still like to get a P-51 Mustang and rent a car wherever I land, but this will do.
