Klein Vision's flying car completes first intercity flight

Imagine driving to your local airport but instead of heading to the car park, you head to the one of the runways for takeoff. Such a scenario has taken a major step toward becoming reality, with Klein Vision having flown a prototype for its Air Car flying car between two cities in its home of Slovakia.

The Air Car prototype on June 28 made a successful flight from an airport in Nitra to an airport in Bratislava. The distance by road between the two airports is approximately 60 miles and the Air Car was able to complete the trip in 35 minutes, flying at an altitude of 8,200 feet and hitting a maximum cruising speed of 118 mph.
