First Japanese flying car successfully lifts off the ground for about a minute in it’s first test flight

Japanese electronics giant NEC Corporation tested a prototype flying car that hovered steadily in the air for almost a minute during a test in Japan this week.

This vehicle is basically a large drone equipped with four horizontal propellers each around 4-5 feet long. It has three wheels and a compact cabin that is capable of carrying people.

The battery powered machine took it’s first test flight on Monday August 5, 2019. About the height of 10 feet from ground it hovered for almost a minute before landing successfully on ground. In this demo flight there weren’t any passengers inside.

This might not be a huge thing as number of other companies has already done this kind of stuff before. But it was a successful flight though and this took us another one step closer to make flying car a reality soon.

Japan is a densely populated country and that means flying cars could greatly solve the burden on road traffic. Japan aims to deliver these flying cars for shipping goods by around 2023 and by around 2030 Japan is hoping to let people ride in these vehicles.
