Flying Cars Tested Successfully in Japan

Sky Drive Inc, a company in Japan has held its first successful test of the flying cars in public in the country making a huge landmark in the industry.

The testing of the flying cars was carried out at the Toyota Test Field, one of the largest in Japan and home to the car company’s development base. It was the first public demonstration for a flying car in Japanese history.

The car that was given the name SD-03 was flown for a maximum of only 4 minutes and had a pilot who was operating it.

“We are extremely excited to have achieved Japan’s first-ever manned flight of a flying car in the two years since we founded SkyDrive… with the goal of commercializing such aircraft,” CEO Tomohiro Fukuzawa said in a statement.

“We want to realize a society where flying cars are an accessible and convenient means of transportation in the skies and people are able to experience a safe, secure, and comfortable new way of life.”

The SD-03 will be the world’s smallest electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle and takes up the space of about two parked cars, according to the company. In as far as safety in emergency situations is concerned, the company says that it has installed eight motors in the cars.

“In designing an unexplored, new genre of transportation known as the flying car, we chose the keyword “progressive” for inspiration,” Design Director Takumi Yamamot said.
“We wanted this vehicle to be futuristic, charismatic and desirable for all future customers, while fully incorporating the high technology of SkyDrive.
The car is expected to undergo several tests under different conditions to ensure that it is fully safe for usage and most important, they hope that the technology used in the cars is matching with the international standards.
The success of this flight means that it is likely the car will be tested outside of the Toyota Test field by the end of the year.
The company has promised to continue developing technologies to safely and securely launch the flying car in 2023. At the moment, no price tags have been attached to the car and so all will have to wait for major news and developments before 2023.
