PAL-V starts selling its commercial models

This week, flying car manufacturer PAL-V has officially started the sales of its commercial models, the Liberty Pioneer and Liberty Sport. The first commercial flying car in the world is now a fact.

Prepared For The Next Phase

“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. Following the successful test programs of their concept vehicles in 2009 and 2012, PAL-V started the design of the commercial products that have been launched today. PAL-V is now nearing an exciting phase for its continued business growth, namely fulfilling the first client orders. While other flying car manufacturers' concepts require modified regulations and in many cases not yet existing technologies, PAL-V deliberately chose to engineer, design and build a flying car with proven technologies and fully compliant with existing regulations. This leads to a first product delivery datethat is realistic and imminent.

The New Model

The new model design has a distinct Italian flair, thanks to collaborations with leading Italian design agencies. It incorporates a 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 on the road. A novel design approach serves to avoid a number of common pilot errors by design, making the PAL-V Liberty very safe and easy to operate. The PAL-V Liberty has a strong appeal all over the world says Markus Hess, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of PAL-V, who introduced the PAL-V Liberty to selected clients last year. “We are very pleased with the response so far. Now that the new design is public I expect to see great interest from customers that have waited for the flying car era to start" says Hess.

Production

“Later in 2017 we will start building a preproduction series followed by the manufacturing of the first PAL-V Libertys for our early 'pioneer' clients. Deliveries of road and air certificated models are scheduled by the end of 2018. This truly is a pivotal time in aviation and mobility history” adds Dingemanse.
