Dubai company orders more than 100 PAL-V flying cars tested at Twente Airport

Aviterra, a Dubai-based company, has signed a deal with PAL-V to bring more than 100 flying cars to the Middle East and Africa. PAL-V conducted tests at Twente Airport last year using various real life scenarios to test the driving stability of their flying car. Our nearly 3 km long runway and shielded environment provided all the space needed to test the stability safely and in a controlled manner.

Aviterra, run and supported by one of the founders of Jetex, a world leader in executive aviation, sees the appeal of PAL-V in its solution for last-mile and regional mobility. Mouhanad Wadaa, Managing Director of Aviterra, explains: "The PAL-V is the perfect vehicle for our customers' regional travel needs by combining flying and driving. It is an innovation that will change mobility as we know it today."

The PAL-V Liberty, known as the world's first flying car, due to its combination of a gyrocopter and a car, addresses the demand for faster and more flexible travel independent of (congested) roads. With a flight range of 500 km and a maximum air speed of 180 km/h, the Liberty reduces travel times by a factor of 2 to 3.

"As an aviation company, we have always kept a close eye on the emerging Advanced Air Mobility industry," notes Wadaa, noting the unique opportunity PAL-V presents. "PAL-V's long-standing presence and compliance with existing regulations allow our customers to safely use FlyDrive solutions using existing air and road infrastructure. Moreover, PAL-V is the only player that combines flying and driving in one vehicle. No other player on the market offers this combination and can realistically deliver the vehicles on short notice."
