Back to the Future – First Flying Car Has Arrived 

For just three hundred thousand dollars, you can now skip annoying traffic by flying to your destination in your new flying car. A California company is now taking preorders for an environmentally friendly electric flying car. 

You can preorder an electric flying car for three hundred thousand dollars.

According to the NY Post;

The company said in a news release that Alef Aeronautics’ flying car had been given a Special Airworthiness Certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), meaning the company will be allowed to road/air test the vehicle.

Alef touts the car’s ability to avoid traffic and fly in any direction while giving a “cinematic 180 plus degree view for a safe and enjoyable flight.”

The fully-electric vehicle (with a hydrogen option for a higher price) is a low-speed vehicle that can be driven up to 200 miles on public roads and fits into a regular garage. Still, it can also launch vertically into the air with a flying range of 110 miles, according to Alef’s website.

An FAA spokesperson told Fox Business it “issued a Special Airworthiness Certificate for the Armada Model Zero aircraft on June 12, 2023. This certificate allows the aircraft to be used for limited purposes, including exhibition, research, and development. This is not the first aircraft for which the FAA has issued a Special Airworthiness Certificate.”

The company said the FAA is working on policies for the takeoff and landing of electric vehicles.

Dukhovny and co-founders Constantine Kisly, Pavel Markin, and Oleg Petrovwere were first inspired to try to create a flying car in 2015 when they realized it was the same year Marty McFly drove one in “Back to the Future II,” the website says.

“During one of the Science Fiction lectures, Jim Dukhovny talked about how flying cars were finally possible in 2015,” the website says. So the group met in a cafe to figure out to build this flying vehicle, and now this scientific dream has come to life. 

In the movie “Back to the Future Part II,” released in 1989, the concept of a flying car was introduced. The film is a time-travel adventure where the main characters, Marty McFly and Doc Brown, travel to the future, specifically to the year 2015.

Back the Future isn’t the first to predict a future with flying vehicles. The Jetsons, an animated television show from 1962 to 1963, depicted a futuristic family living in 2062.

One of the notable elements of this futuristic world was the presence of flying cars, which were a standard mode of transportation for the characters. In the show, these flying cars were depicted as small, bubble-like vehicles that could be easily maneuvered in the air and used for commuting between buildings and cities. Little did the creators know that by the year 2023, their fantasy would be reality. 

The development of flying cars, also known as “urban air mobility vehicles,” is now a reality. Several companies and startups worldwide are investing in this technology and working towards making flying cars a reality. These vehicles combine the benefits of airplanes and cars, allowing for vertical takeoff, landing, and conventional road travel.

The idea of flying cars has captured the imagination of many, and there is significant interest and investment in this field. While it may take some time for flying cars to become a standard mode of transportation, ongoing research, and development indicate that we are moving closer to a future where they could become a viable option for urban mobility.

Alef unveiled the car last October and said it has already taken a “strong” number of preorders from people and businesses.

Flying cars will surely be one of the most exciting inventions of this lifetime. 

Although, what about the birds?
