The United States issued the first certificate of validity for a flying car.

The United States issued the first certificate of validity for a flying car.

The American company Alef Aeronautics, which develops a flying car, was the first in the world to receive an airworthiness certificate for this type of vehicle from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the company said in a press release.

Flying car design and development company Alef Aeronautics has announced it has received a special airworthiness certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration, marking the first time a vehicle of its kind has received legal flight clearance from the US government.

The Model A sports car was unveiled in October last year: an all-electric car capable of moving both on the ground and in the air thanks to the possibility of vertical takeoff and landing, Alef specifies.

The FAA is currently working on a policy for such vehicles and their interaction with ground infrastructure. For this reason, the government’s certificate limits the locations and destinations for flying in Alef’s car, the company adds.

Alef Aeronautics was founded in 2015 in Palo Alto, California. The main goal of the company is the creation of a certified passenger car capable of vertical take-off and horizontal flight.
