You’ve probably seen numerous flying cars in works of fiction, but many companies nowadays are attempting to make this fantasy come true.

A Slovakian manufacturer named AeroMobil is among these visionaries. The company unveiled its version of a flying automobile at Monaco’s “supercar” event.

The vehicle is a light-framed plane whose wings can fold back like an insect. It runs on a hybrid engine and is boosted by rear propeller, but can work as an ordinary car as well.

It’s also equipped with airbags, aluminum crash structures as well as a ballistic recovery parachute.

The unique capabilities of the vehicle, however, have led to some dilemmas, including taking off and piloting license restrictions.
