AeroMobil to exhibit at the prestigious world automotive exhibition in Frankfurt

AeroMobil, the leading flying car designer, will exhibit the newest model of its innovative vehicle at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany. This year’s theme is “Future now,” dedicated to automotive transformation. It will cover new mobility concepts for the cities of the future, including Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), which is central to the long-term AeroMobil vehicle strategy.

The company will showcase the latest AeroMobil flying car which is purposefully designed as a breath-taking, high-technology luxury vehicle. The model integrates the best of automotive and aerospace innovation. It applies automotive safety standards and lighter weight aerodynamics from aviation to give owners true freedom of movement in the air and on the road while remaining efficient. The team will be ready to take pre-orders at the show. The vehicle is expected to go into full production in the coming year with the first deliveries being made to customers by 2020.

“Designing and delivering our first production-ready flying car is our priority, but as interest in the sector grows opportunities will extend into new areas,” said Juraj Vaculik, CEO, AeroMobil.  “We see big opportunities for AeroMobil to take the lead in designing flying cars for MaaS and personal air transport.  We are really looking forward to discussing our plans with the automotive industry and investors at IAA.”

The AeroMobil flying car has already filed 14 patents for innovations in safety and engineering, which will help to make this a unique and comfortable travel experience for owners. The exterior is highly aerodynamic utilising the latest carbon composite construction found in the most sophisticated sports cars and performance aircraft.  The vehicle’s interior is designed to surround the pilot or driver in a high strength monocoque structure that provides unprecedented levels of safety.  While travelling on the road the occupant restraint system uses pyrotechnic seatbelt technology in conjunction with dual-stage airbags. During flight the flying car features a whole vehicle parachute for additional safety. The AeroMobil has a custom 2.0 turbo charged 4-cylinder boxer internal combustion engine with a FADEC (fully autonomous digital electronic control) digital control unit. On the road, the AeroMobil is powered by a dedicated electric front wheel drive system incorporating electronic differential and an adaptive transmission delivering both road-going functionality and direct drive during flight. Combined with the vehicle’s lightweight design this helps to ensure greater endurance on the road and in the air.

“AeroMobil is a true feat of engineering and design, requiring all our creativity, passion and technical expertise to deliver a ground-breaking product,” added Douglas MacAndrew, CTO, AeroMobil. “Integrating flight and car travel is not simple, but having condensed approximately 60 man-years of research and development into three the AeroMobil flying car is designed to meet the current legislative requirements. At IAA we will be able to show how to bring a flying car to market in the very near future working within today’s regulatory and transport infrastructure.”

Mobility is developing in many directions and it will be underpinned by ever more sophisticated digital technologies. AeroMobil sees this as a significant opportunity in the flying car sector to use intelligent connectivity and digitisation to make travel safer and more efficient. This is especially relevant to growing discussions around MaaS, designing intelligent systems that understand and can respond to different automotive and aviation data in a coherent way. AeroMobil’s highly experienced engineering team, and specialist advisors such as recent additions Martin Hauge and Jonathan Carrier, are currently planning future designs for a series of models in different price categories for MaaS and personal air transport.

VDA-President Matthias Wissmann said: "We are looking forward to the IAA full of enthusiastic anticipation. At exactly the right time it will bring together all the players who shape the mobility of the future. The preparations for the 67th IAA Cars are running at full speed. The main focus will be on digitization. The cars of the future will be connected and automated. The slogan of this IAA, “Future now,” ties in with this. The IAA will be opened on September 14 by Chancellor Angela Merkel.”

The AeroMobil executive team will be present at the IAA Frankfurt 2017 Hall 8, Booth 19, during the press days and trade days. If you are interested in meeting please contact

About AeroMobil

AeroMobil is a leader in mobility in three dimensions with a vision to liberate personal mobility from the ground and into the skies. AeroMobil develops the most flexible, capable and efficient range of personal aerial vehicles (PAVs) designed for door to door travel in intra and inter-urban environments, reducing congestion and emissions while increasing proximity and convenience for citizens, cities and society. 

AeroMobil is pioneering the development and commercialisation of flying cars, developing cutting edge technology to produce a range of vehicles for short take-off and landing (STOL) and vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). This includes electric propulsion systems, battery technology and control systems for piloted and autonomous flight for transportation on the ground and in the air to support short and longe range personal air travel with eVTOLs. 

AeroMobil adopts an iterative approach to the development of personal air transportation in line with technology readiness, legislation and market acceptance. We believe the future offers unbounded opportunity for air mobility at scale but requires a pragmatic and considered approach to ensure technology and solutions implemented are safe, reliable and effective through partnership and collaboration with regulators, governments and cities to realise the benefits of all. 

The first flying car from AeroMobil provides increased flexibility and versatility for the customer as it combines the best of automotive and aerospace technology into one vehicle while respecting the limits of current technology and the regulatory environment. It is the first step in our journey towards air Mobility-as-a-service (aMaaS) which will make personal transportation vastly more efficient and environmentally friendly by allowing significantly faster door-to-door travel over short and medium distances, and in areas with limited road or public transport infrastructure.
