Dutch Gyrocopter

PAL-V

|Last week I was introduced to the flying car by developer Robert Barnhoorn of Spark Design. His carcopter runs on gasoline and speeds up to 180 km/h (112 mph) both on land and in the air. On the road, this three wheeler accelerates like a sports car and is very easy to control. The gyroplane technology means that it can be steered and landed safely even if the engine fails, because the rotor keeps auto rotating. The 2-seat gyroplane has already been ordered by several American and Chinese companies. You need a flying license of €100,000 for it. Estimated price € 200,000 Click here to see it fly Gyrocopter PAL-V ONE
