The Wild Dutch PAL-V One Helicopter Car

by Mike Perlman | April 5, 2012

The PAL-V One (Personal Air and Land Vehicle) looks like a reverse Can-Am Spyder got it on with a helicopter. This has been quite a week for flying cars, as the PAL-V One joins the radical $279,000 Terrafugia (a drivable airplane). The PAL-V One is defined by Dutch company PAL-V as “a two seat hybrid car and gyroplane with the agility of a motorcycle thanks to its patented, cutting-edge, ‘tilting’ system.”

PAL-V-OneThe PAL-V One will transform into a miniature helicopter via a smaller rear-mounted propeller and large top-mounted propeller. Once in the air, the PAL-V One will fly at 4,000 ft., which resides in the uncontrolled Visual Flight Control airspace so as not to interfere with commercial crafts. The PAL-V One will reach 112MPH on both land and in the air via a flight certified aircraft engine that runs on unleaded gas.

Are we that far away from The Jetsons?
