The Slovak flying car, AeroMobil 4.0, is expected to commence test flights as soon as final tests come to an end, the Denník N daily reported.

The engine has already passed testing. In August, the complete engine system, propeller, wings, tail surfaces and other parts of this car prototype are also planned for testing.

“After successful tests, the development team will analyse findings, of which a part will also be used by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and test flights can then commence,” said Štefan Vadocz, a CCO at AeroMobil, as quoted by Denník N.

Prior to the flying car being sold on the market, AeroMobil has to comply with a number of regulations. This could be done by 2021.

“Every element which can be found in a car or a plane is subject to a law paragraph and a regulation,” Vadocz added, as quoted by Denník N.
