I don't know if my friends who have paid attention to the Geneva Motor Show this year have no impression of a PAL-V aircraft. This is actually a flying car. Its biggest feature is that it can not only run like a car, but also fly like a plane. Its appearance also refreshed our understanding of the car, but also felt that the flying car that was previously seen in science fiction finally saw the real thing.
In fact, this type of flying car has been mentioned by many people even a few years ago, but it is a concept model, and there is no real model that can be put into production. So even today, we haven't really seen any company that has launched a real flying car, let alone seen it on the road. However, Geely will now launch such a flying car in the United States, and the transition produced by its TERRAFUGIA has completed the final test and will immediately enter mass production. The netizen said that who can stand up, it seems very surprised.
Surprise is still behind, this car will also complete the first order shipment before the end of this year, which means that users in the US who placed orders last October will be able to drive it to the earliest at the end of the year. The cloud is over. Is it very surprising? Of course, due to the limitation of airspace, we still can't realize the car's card in the next few years. And for us, we still face a big problem. Is it the card on the plane or the card of the car? If it is a plane card, it seems that there is no agency.
This car will have two modes, land mode + flight mode, in the natural state is the land mode, then the wing is contracted, looks like a big car, but its body length is 6.02 meters The width is 2.3 meters and the height is 1.98 meters. In this car, the C card can't be driven in theory. Its top speed can reach 113 kilometers.
When the transition enters flight mode, it can be seen that its wing is fully extended and its width is correspondingly 8 meters. At this time, it only needs to pass the full speed of 500 meters to complete the take-off action. Finally, its top speed can reach 184 kilometers, and the cruising speed can reach 160 kilometers. It doesn't look too fast and should be safe. From the data, it can be seen that its flying height is up to 3048 meters, and the battery life is more than 600 kilometers. The trip in the middle is still no problem.
As an aircraft, its safety is guaranteed. It is equipped with the same airbags and seat belts as the car, as well as dynamic electronic flight information and escape parachutes. Considering that its speed is not very fast, it is believed that the visual observation should still be able to drive normally, and it is also good to select and judge the flight path ahead. But there are curious netizens asking: Is it necessary to test a flight certificate for driving this car? This is troublesome!
Regardless of the country, the biggest resistance of this flying car is believed to be the qualification to drive it. Obviously it seems that not only the driver's license of the car is needed, but also the flight certificate is required to be able to drive legally. It may be better for the United States. After all, they have already opened up the civil aircraft market, but our country is almost blank in this respect, so even if it is already mass-produced, it is believed to be a commercial purpose. Personal estimates are still not realized in a short time. of.
Geely put into production a flying car, land mode + flight mode, do you have to test the flight certificate for this car? Of course, perhaps the operation of the legendary flying will soon be realized. This type of flying car, as a rental aircraft, can quickly reach its destination with passengers. It should be no problem.
