AeroMobil 3.0 Flying Car Crash

AeroMobil 3.0 flying car crash occured last Friday, May 8th. The AeroMobil 3.0 prototype flying car crashed during a flight test in Slovakia. Its inventor and the man behind the controls, Stefan Klein, deployed a whole-aircraft parachute at an height of approximately 300 m , which slowed landing and saved Klein’s life. Pilot reportedly suffered only minor injuries, but the impact on the land seems to have destroyed the craft itself.

One word that company hadn't told was "crash". “We are still analyzing the data from the incident,” spokesman Stefan Vadocz told. Reports show that the AeroMobil 3.0 entered a tailspin before Klein activated the parachute. One of the guess why incident happened is that the airspeed had dropped too low for the prototype to continue flying and an error called stalling. The AeroMobil 3.0 flying car  was thought to be one of the more advanced designs, even promising that one day soon its vehicle might be self-flying. For now, pieces must be picked up and drawing boards gone back to.

This crash may have resulted from an unanticipated stall, or a stall test from which the craft was unable to recover. If that’s the case, the company will have to make aerodynamic modifications to AeroMobil 3.0 flying car in order to improve its stall performance.“The detailed data and overall experience from this test flight will be thoroughly analyzed and the results will be used in the ongoing R&D and improvements of the prototype,” a company statement said. “This is a learning period which allows us to detect and subsequently refine our design”.
