Flying cars are coming to Dubai

Aviterra, a Dubai-based company backed by one of the founders of Jetex, a global leader in executive aviation, has concluded a deal with PAL-V to bring flying cars to the Middle East and Africa.

Aviterra is acquiring more than 100 PAL-V Liberty flying cars, making an investment, and formalizing a partnership for the Middle East and Africa.

“The PAL-V is the perfect tool for our customers’ regional travel requirements, offering a combination of flying and driving,” said Mouhanad Wadaa, managing director of Aviterra. “It’s truly an innovation that will change mobility as we know it.”

The world’s first flying car

The PAL-V Liberty, known as the world’s first real flying car due to the combination of a gyroplane and a car, addresses the need to travel independent from (congested) roads and enhance travel flexibility.

With a flight range of 500 km and a maximum airspeed of 180 km/h, the Liberty shortens commute and travel times.

“While running a business aviation company, we’ve always kept a close eye on the emerging Advanced Air Mobility industry,” said Wadaa, highlighting the unique opportunity PAL-V presents. “PAL-V’s long-standing presence and adherence to existing regulations allow our customers to safely FlyDrive using existing air and road infrastructure. Furthermore, PAL-V is the only player that combines flying and driving into one vehicle. No other player in the market offers this combination and can realistically deliver the vehicles in the near future.”

PAL-V is setting up regional offices around the world to grow its flying car business. These regional offices are hubs for PAL-V’s sales, maintenance, flight training, and assembly locations.
