Will Our Cars Fly in the Near Future?
Is it just science fiction or true reality that we will soon use cars that will also be able to fly?
A Slovakian company called Aeromobil introduced a prototype of its flying car at the October 2014 Pioneers Festival in Vienna.
Powered by a standard petrol engine the Aeromobil 3.0 can be used on the road just like any other car.
But this car is special. The “Flying Roadster” can metamorphose itself quickly into a plane which can take off and land at any airport or use just a few hundred metres long grass strip as a runway.
The bodyshell, wings and wheels of the prototype are predominantly built using advanced composite materials.
to metamorphose: to transform.

to take off: (of a plane or bird) the moment of leaving the ground and beginning to fly.
