New Investor Partners with AeroMobil

At the forefront of the global development of innovative flying cars, AeroMobil has recently concluded negotiations on a financial investment from private investor Patrick Hessel, founder and CEO of c2i, a manufacturer of composite parts of the aerospace and automotive industries. This development is part of AeroMobil’s ongoing initiative to strengthen the capital of the company and further prepare the unique flying vehicle for sales and production.

AeroMobil’s newest investor, Patrick Hessel last week sold 50.1% of c2i to LG Hausys, the company providing automotive light-weight components within LG Group. c2i is one of the key technology partners and component suppliers for AeroMobil. Both companies have been working together for several years.

“The development of this vehicle has enough significance to be considered as one of the today’s most innovative and ambitious projects in automotive and aerospace businesses. However, its transition to the industrial phase depends on additional investments. It is a welcome platform for the inclusion of investors, who understand this breakthrough innovation our unique business model and strategy. Until today, AeroMobil has financed the development of the genuine mathematical and geometric data of the new flying car model, but the new investment will enable the company to develop and showcase a physical model. It will be very close to the final product that will be used in series production. As a result of this extensive engineering and analysis effort, we have a very clear picture as to how our product will function and are very confident that the vehicle we are showing is deliverable without any more significant changes.” – said co-founder and CEO Juraj Vaculík.


"I am impressed by the advanced degree of engineering design and simulation at AeroMobil. For the past two years, AeroMobil 3.0 has demonstrated that it already had the capability to fly and drive.  My investment enables the company to move into production on the latest model and prototypes. The team, which has come together at AeroMobil, is absolutely unique and has enormous potential to achieve global change in passenger transport. "- said Patrick Hessel.


An international team of more than sixty experts from the automotive and aerospace sectors representing over eight countries across the world will in a few days present the results of their work - a new model of the AeroMobil show car. This vehicle is designed to comply with all existing regulations for road and air transport and will represent a significant milestone in the worldwide development of a unique vehicle intended for road and air travel.

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.
