Skylys the flying car, a drivable vehicle capable of vertical take off and landing (VTOL) when integrated to a set of wings.
The Skylys flying car from Mix Aerospace, is vehicle half way between a car and a helicopter.
The group is aim to create an urban dual-mode, hybrid flight and electric drive motorized vehicle that fits into sustainable mobility.
This 4 wheeled module is the main structure of a flying car which will adapt to its multi propeller system with a modular robotics system. Driving the vehicle, thanks to its shape and size, fits perfectly into an urban space and happens to be the perfect link between aviation and automotive with the bonus of respecting the environment. It enables multimodal links between small suburban airports and the last kilometer journeys.
The idea is to easily commute between airports or even from building to building, for example in Brasilia or Dubai. Not only to decongest cities or flee pollution but to gain time.
The Flying car could be initially used for civil protection, Firefighters, Ambulances, rescue missions, and also for private use if one has a helicopter license. On the road, the Skylys® has the properties of a regular car, and need nothing more than your normal driver’s license.
