The mass manufacturing of a flying car has taken a step closer to reality with a new deal signed between AirCar developers KleinVision and Chinese flying car specialist Hebei Jianxin Flying Car Technology Co., LTD.

Under the deal, the Chinese company will have the exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute flying cars that use KleinVisions groundbreaking technology within a specific geographical region.

The dual-mode AirCar was given its airworthiness certificate in Slovakia, the home of KleinVision in 2022 after successfully demonstrating it is safe to fly to EASA standards, a program that included over 200 take-offs and landings.

“We are pleased to announce the sale of the license for our certified flying car technology to the esteemed Chinese company,” stated Stefan Klein, Chairman of the Board at KleinVision.

“This partnership represents a significant step in our mission to expand global access to revolutionary mobility solutions and drive progress in the industry,” added Anton Zajac, co-founder at KleinVision.

The AirCar has drawn attention from around the world and has even received interest from The Grand Tour with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May checking out the test vehicle.

In simple terms, a flying car is a car with wings allowing it to operate in dual mode as a road car and then into an aeroplane.

It is seen by many as the ultimate vehicle for commuting with the ability to drive from the home to a runway, fly to a point near work and then drive the final section to the office.
