[Luxus+ Magazine] Alef Aeronautics’ flying car is certified and will soon be on the market!

Back to the future? A new model of flying car has been certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the USA. This model, which can run on roads and fly in the air, pushes the limits of technology even further.

 

The future is fast approaching! The Alef Model A, a flying car developed by Alef Aeronautics, an American company specializing in automobiles and aeronautics, recently received a special certificate of airworthiness from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the USA. Named Armada Model Zero, the vehicle is a precursor to the Model A prototype that Alef Aeronautics unveiled in October 2022.

 

 

Since its founding in 2015, the company has been committed to creating the world’s first flying car. A major milestone has now been reached, as this vehicle is the first to be authorized for public demonstrations.

 

Several companies are currently working on fully electric vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft. The FAA indicated that Alef was “not the first aircraft of this type” to receive a special certificate of airworthiness. Nevertheless, Alef stressed that its vehicle is distinguished by its ability to operate both on the road and in the air, to look like a conventional car and to be parked in a standard parking space.

 

“We are delighted to receive this FAA certification. It brings us one step closer to a faster, greener means of transportation, saving individuals and businesses hours every week. It’s one small step for airplanes, one giant leap for cars”, said Alef CEO Jim Dukhovny.
