Executive Opinion

Boeing Co. Senior Technical Fellow, Dr. Branko Sarh, said, "Professor Stefan Klein is the world leader in the development of user-friendly Flying Cars. The automated transition from road vehicle into an air vehicle and vice versa, deploying/retracting wings and tail is not only the result of pioneering enthusiasm, innovative spirit and courage; it is an outcome of excellent engineering and professional knowledge."

After exiting the AirCar cockpit in Bratislava, Professor Klein said, "This flight starts a new era of dual transportation vehicles. It opens a new category of transportation and returns the freedom originally attributed to cars back to the individual."

The co-founder of Klein Vision, Anton Zajac, said, "AirCar is no longer just a proof of concept; flying at 8,200ft at a speed of 100kt, it has turned science fiction into a reality."

AirCar Prototype 2 expected to have a cruise speed of 300km/h (162kt) and a range of 1000km (621mi).
