COMPANY

Inspired by mankind’s dream of unbounded personal desire of movement on the ground and in the air and the experience of absolute freedom.

”The ultra-high-end vehicle that is equally at home on the road or in the sky.”

The AeroMobil Company was established in 2010 to design, develop, and commercially introduce the world’s first flying car – The AeroMobil. Since then the company has been at the forefront of an emerging personal mobility industry with groundbreaking engineering and design including the development and testing of several generations of flying car prototypes. Its latest version AeroMobil, which will be available for purchase in 2023 is the product of over 300,000 hours of design, engineering, and testing will mark a major milestone in the realization of mankind’s dream of unbounded personal mobility.

European design
and engineering

The AeroMobil is designed and engineered in the European Union’s greater Danube Valley region, the world’s largest producer of cars per capita, with Audi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover Kia, Magna, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, and Volkswagen all having state-of-the-art facilities here. The Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga are all born here, along with many other high-end autos and supercars. The region also has a strong history in aerospace design and manufacturing and is a global leader in small aircraft production, through companies including Diamond Aircraft and Aero Vodochody. Many of the key components supplied to the world’s leading automotive and aerospace companies are also designed and manufactured in this part of Europe by companies including Bosch, FACC and Liebherr. Part of the reason for this is our education system’s strong focus on mathematics, science and engineering, resulting in a talent pool well suited to innovation and the development of breakthrough products and services.
