Only 90 are scheduled for production and all come equipped with a dual control cockpit and electronic flight instrument systems. A full carbon package clearly distinguishes it from the standard Liberty, which was demonstrated last year, as well as a tailor-made interior and exclusive characteristic two-tone colourway.
Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V, said: “The Pioneer Edition is for those that want to be part of a unique group that writes history with us. They will be at the forefront of a mobility revolution. They will be the first carflyers in their country, FlyDriving to any destination.”
The Liberty is a revolutionary development, with PAL-V evolving a commercial vehicle that complies with existing regulations. “Although more and more flying concepts are announced, only a handful of companies are working on a real flying car: one that can both fly and drive, ideal for city to city mobility,” said Mike Stekelenburg, PAL-V’S Chief Engineer. “The gyroplane principle not only provides us with a safe and easy to operate flying car but it also enables us to make it compact and within existing regulations, which is the most important factor to build a useable flying car.”
An interesting superyacht toy? We think so.
