AeroMobil. Beautiful flying car. Beautifully integrated. Transforms in seconds from an automobile to an airplane. Gives you freedom to move.

AeroMobil is a flying car that perfectly makes use of existing infrastructure created for automobiles and planes, and opens doors to real door-to-door travel. As a car it fits into any standard parking space, uses regular gasoline, and can be used in road traffic just like any other car. As a plane it can use any airport in the world, but can also take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long.

The current flying car prototype AeroMobil 3.0 incorporates significant improvements and upgrades to the previous pre-prototype AeroMobil 2.5.
It is now finalised and has been in regular flight-testing program in real flight conditions since October 2014.

The AeroMobil 3.0 is predominantly built from advanced composite material. That includes its body shell, wings, and wheels. It also contains all the main features that are likely to be incorporated into the final product, such as avionics equipment, autopilot and an advanced parachute deployment system.

AeroMobil 3.0 also implements a number of other advanced technologies, such as a variable angle of attack of the wings that significantly shortens the take-off requirements, and sturdy suspension that enables it to take-off and land even at relatively rough terrain.

Key People


Antony Sheriff is a renowned automotive industry professional. With an international career stretching over 30 years, Sheriff is recognized as one of the industry’s foremost product experts and has a deep understanding and knowledge of the auto industry at both the highest strategic levels and the detailed design and operating level.

After briefly working as a car designer in Italy and England, he worked and as a product planner for Chrysler. Mr. Sheriff went on to receive his Masters in Management from M.I.T. where he was also a full time researcher for the International Motor Vehicle Program and contributed to the ground-breaking book, “The Machine That Changed the World”. He subsequently joined McKinsey & Company where he advised a number of automotive and non-automotive companies throughout the US and Europe.

In 1995, Sheriff joined Fiat Auto in Italy and was quickly promoted to Director of Product Development for all Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Lancia cars and commercial vehicles. Amongst the many cars he conceived, he was responsible for two “Car of the Year” winners, Alfa Romeo 147 and Fiat Panda. After being appointed Vice-President of the Fiat brand, Sheriff left to join McLaren Automotive in 2003 as Managing Director.

In his decade at McLaren, Sheriff transformed the company from a contract manufacturer for Mercedes-Benz into a profitable independent sports car company with a full product range of highly innovative sports cars that have met broad critical acclaim. Initially, he launched the Mercedes SLR McLaren to market and then conceived and produced the SLR Stirling Moss model, the most expensive Mercedes ever sold.

Sheriff transformed McLaren into a truly independent company and, under his leadership and vision, the company launched the MP4-12C, a revolutionary carbon fibre sports car, followed by the P1, a million dollar hybrid ultra-high performance sports car. A third car that Sheriff conceived, the Sports Series, is being launched later this year. The company also built a brand new production facility and a global distribution network. In its first full year in production, McLaren Automotive achieved a turnover of £267 million and near breakeven profitability. Sheriff resigned as Managing Director of McLaren in 2013 and is now advising and investing in a number of projects in the international automotive industry. Sheriff holds a B.A. and a B.S. from Swarthmore College as well as an M.S. from M.I.T.. He holds American and Italian nationality.

Tomáš Urík is an experienced aviation technician. Tomáš brings years of experience to the team within the spheres of operations, maintenance, and research and development of aviation technology. His skill sets and specialties include computational design, composite materials, light metal alloys and general technological manufacturing of aircraft. He has led multiple aviation development teams as well as partnering with other innovative research and development programs along the way. With over ten years of educational experience in the world of aviation, he adds welcomed technical insight to the existing team.

Tomáš started his professional career in 2003 as a researcher and designer at the Aviation Institute at the University of Technology in Brno, Czech Republic.

It was there that Tomáš got his first exposure to aircraft material design and specialized testing. Over the next years, he would begin to take on a more leadership role through conceptual prototype development at the University. During this time, he also worked in experimental research at the Aerospace Research Centre of Brno. Since 2008, he has led several construction teams in aerospace engineering to develop prototypes of aircraft in categories CS-VLA. His knowledge of sports aircraft configuration and innovation comes from this research heavy time in the aerospace sector.

In 2012, Tomáš worked on the development of bionic structures and additive technology for Airbus A350 aircraft. Over the next three years, Tomáš again led the development teams of new aircraft in the LSA category and Regulation EN - 23 in the Centre of New Technologies for Mechanical Engineering in Brno. His most recent position was leading research and development on the TL 4000 at the NETME Centre, also located in Brno. While working on the TL 4000, Tomáš organized and led all R&D activities on the CFRP aircraft.

After joining the AeroMobil this year, Tomáš took on the challenge before him of pushing the flying car vision to new limits of technological possibility. It has since been his goal to set out finding new practical solutions for the vehicle’s structural design and its technological makeup. AeroMobil will directly benefit from Tomáš’s involvement by his ability to ensure that the vehicle’s makeup is comparable to excellent flight characteristics found in other top sports aircraft.

How much is AeroMobil?
The prototype is work in progress and only after completion of the certification and homologation both as a car and as well as an aircraft we will be able to set the final configuration and therefore the final price span. Expect the price combination of sports car and Light Sports Aircraft (LSA), several hundreds of thousand Euro.
When will be AeroMobil available for purchase?
After the completion of the final configuration we will be able to set the manufacturing date. We expect to start delivering the product in the next two or three years. The sales process will start earlier.
What pilot license is necessary to operate AeroMobil in air?
Private Pilot License (PPL) is recommended. However, we expect that for the early version of AeroMobil Sport Pilot License (SPL) will be sufficient. Training requirements for these licenses vary country by country, but minimum 40 hours of flight training is strongly recommended.
What driver license is necessary to operate AeroMobil on the road?
For the road operation, standard car driving license is required.
What certification/approvals will AeroMobil have under EASA/FAA?
Current setup of the prototype is compatible with the requirements set for an aircraft in the category Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) or Ultra Light in EU. AeroMobil 3.0 is certified with Slovak Federation of Ultralight Flying. Future setup may require certification in Normal category.
When do you start to take orders?
At the moment we register interest from many countries around the globe and hope we'll be ready to take first preliminary orders in 2016.
What petrol is used?
AeroMobil 3.0 prototype in the current engine configuration (Rotax 912) uses standard unleaded automobile fuel.
