This week, PAL-V, a flying car manufacturing company, has officially started the sales of its commercial models: “The Liberty Pioneer” and “Liberty Sport.”
“After years of hard work, beating the technical and qualification challenges, our team succeeded in creating an innovative flying car that complies with existing safety standards, determined by regulatory bodies around the world,” says Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V.
The new model design has a distinct Italian flair, thanks to the collaboration with leading Italian design agencies. It incorporates unique dual engine propulsion that further increases the safety of the PAL-V Liberty. While driving, the lowered suspension and tilting “cockpit” adds to the sports car feel. A novel design approach serves to avoid several common pilot errors by design, making the PAL-V Liberty very safe and easy to operate.
The PAL-V Liberty has a strong appeal in the North America markets where Mark Jennings-Bates, VP of Sales of North America, has introduced the PAL-V model to selected clients in Canada, USA, Mexico and Bermuda.
“We are very pleased with the response so far. Now that the new design is public, I expect to see an even greater interest stemming from North America, which has a propensity for early adoption in innovative products,” says Jennings-Bates.
What are the advantages compare to a conventional airplane or helicopter? Simple, contrary to fixed-wing planes, it can’t stall, and crosswind landings are more comfortable and safer; in turbulent air, it still flies smoothly with excellent stability due to its high rotor speed; also, because a gyroplane can fly very slowly, it needs very little space to land, approximately take-off distance ranges from only 300ft to 650ft; it has a stable mechanical; flying this machine does not require anybody to stay behind to guard it at the landing spot and it is much cheaper to own and operate by having a significantly lower cost of ownership than any other plane or helicopter.
So ready to give it a try? I’m ready. Let’s fly the friendly skies with the new PAL-V Liberty!
