As if Driving Were Not Dangerous Enough

Stuck in traffic again and late for a meeting… No problem, just pop out your wings and go airborne with AeroMobil!  Now cars can crash not just into ground level storefronts, they can slam into penthouses too!

According to their site,  “it fits to a standard parking space, its engine enables it to tank at any gas station, it is fully accustomed to road traffic and as a plane it could both take off and land at any airport in the world.”

I’d love to see the look on your insurance brokers face when you try and get collision for this thing!

Update May, 2015

Nothing is more shocking when a flying car crashes, and we at WheeledThing are happy to hear the inventor and test pilot, Stefan Klein safely ejected.  According to to the AeroMobile press release,

“The flight recording details will help us learn from the data and improve the performance of the vehicle prior to our next flight test.” or we expected to crash and we will make sure this does not happen again.   aeromobil-flying-car-crash

    It looks like the crashed “flying car” was a different model, one of these:

    Their website makes clear that this thing, which is called a “Maverick,” was developed specifically to make it easier to reach indigenous peoples who live far from established population centers, so that you can teach them about Jesus.

    I guess Jesus didn’t think much of the car.
