Flying Car - the World’s First electric Vertical Take-⁠off And Landing

A successful test flight has been carried out on a prototype ‘flying car’ created by a company in Germany. The two-seater prototype, created by Munich-based firm Lilium, is capable of vertical take-off and landing and transitions to conventional wing-borne flight. Lilium hopes the vehicle could be used for urban air taxi services 

Munich-based Lilium, backed by investors who include Skype co-founder Niklas Zennström, said the planned five-seater jet, which will be capable of vertical take-off and landing, could be used for urban air-taxi and ride-sharing services.

The Slovakian firm AeroMobil said at a car show in Monaco on Thursday it would start taking orders for a hybrid flying car that can drive on roads. It said it planned production from 2020.  But makers of “flying cars” still face hurdles, including convincing regulators and the public that their products can be used safely. Governments are still grappling with regulations for drones and driverless cars.
