In the world of technology, many inventions have emerged from the garage. We don’t know all the details surrounding the first attempt to construct a flying car in 1917, but we do know that the first AeroMobil concept originated out of a small garage as well.
The latest model of AeroMobil began writing its story shortly after the world premiere of the previous experimental prototype at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna. The company brought together international team that was inspired by revolutionary technology, under the leadership of Doug MacAndrew, CTO, to design the future of our vehicles and the business behind them.
Juraj Vaculík | “The newest AeroMobil is a tangible and truly cutting-edge technological advancement. It represents many years of pooled experiences from dozens of engineers from the automotive and aviation industries. We‘ve linked the aerospace and automotive world like no one before us.“
Doug MacAndrew | “The current level of scientifc knowledge and expertise of engineers worldwide has provided essential support for this revolutionary era in personal transport. The availability of lightweight construction materials, increases in power density of the latest engines, and advances in systems software and hardware solutions have opened up completely new possibilities in vehicle design and engineering.“
It was only ten months later, with a team of twelve people, that they released the Experimental Prototype AeroMobil 3.0 to worldwide acclaim. In 2015, the company received a prestigious award from Popular Science magazine for the Invention of the Year, and AeroMobil 3.0 continues to be a popular attraction worldwide, notably being presented at the 2015 EXPO as well as several other world events.
It was in the early 90’s when designer and pilot Stefan Klein started to work on his first flying car concepts. In 2010, together with Juraj Vaculík, they founded their independent company and presented the concept of AeroMobil 2.5 to the world.
