US Government Considers Flying Car

Another flying car, what is it with all these flying cars? You never know the future of the ’50s could be just round the corner?

US Government Considers Flying Car

The ultimate SUV will make urban traffic jams a thing of the past – it flies.

The AVX Transformer (TX) is the result of a challenge by the American Government military development agency DARPA. It asked someone to come up with the ultimate go-anywhere four-seat vehicle for combat use.

American company ATX, a military helicopter manufacturer from Texas, took up the challenge. Its proposal for a flying 4×4 is possibly the most mobile SUV ever – and certainly the most extreme.

It’s capable of 30mph on rough terrain, 80mph on a normal road and 140mph in the air. It can take off and land vertically from any sort of ground and converts to flight mode in just one minute.

A 250 nautical mile range (around 280 miles on land) is possible from a single tank, and it can be easily converted into a fully equipped medical vehicle in war situations. It has been designed so that even a non-pilot could easily take to the skies.

The US Government is now considering the proposal, though it will be some time before a decision on production is made.
