TORONTO — Two significant developments from Europe have given hope to those who dream of one day heading to work in a flying car. In Slovakia, the research and development company Klein Vision recently unveiled its “AirCar Prototype,” capable of driving on the road and — after a three-minute transformation — flying through the air. While a video of this transition is reminiscent of something out of a Transformers movie, the AirCar is not just a work of science fiction, having completed successful test flights with humans inside. The AirCar has an estimated range of 1,000 kilmotres on a single fuel tank and can reach speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour through the air.
