About

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.

Joining in March, Hugues will heavily contribute to advancing AeroMobil’s airworthiness and ensuring certification standards are achieved within requirements.

Hugues Cardinal was trained at the School of the Air Salon-de-Provence where he received an engineering degree in aeronautics and became a certified pilot. Hugues spent time training to be a fighter pilot shortly after that, but in 1991, he left the program and garnered his rich Air Force training and combined theory for his next chapter. While in the Air Force, he had piloted a broad array of planes including the windfall aircraft: CAP 10B, CM170 Fouga Magister, Embraer 121 Xingu, but also had flights on Alphajet, Mirage III, Mirage F1 and Mirage 2000.

In 1992, he joined the Délégation Générale pour l’Armement (DGA) where he worked in the field of certification of light aircraft for the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC). In 1998, he joined the DGAC as Deputy Head of the General Aviation aircraft airworthiness office of and continued rising through the ranks as Head of General Aviation in 2001-2008 and Head of Certification in 2010-2011. It was in 2011 that he began stepping out on his own to create VELICA S.A.S to act as a consulting firm for the array of aeronautic purposes specializing in certification and airworthiness.

During the last five years, VELICA had an incredible richness in terms of experiences, meetings and missions on behalf of recognized customers. The company assisted in the certification of aircraft changes, for obtaining authorizations of flight or obtaining aeronautical approvals. VELICA, accompanied by the most daring aviation project, keeps its feet on Earth thanks to sharp the evolution of European regulations, American and Chinese knowledge and the operation of certification authorities. With one goal: minimize the time of placing the aircraft of their clients on the market. For example, the process of certification of the electrical aircraft E-Fan 2.0 developed by AIRBUS INNOVATION. Even through work on the regulatory compliance of the new A310, replacing the old A300 of NOVESPACE, a subsidiary of CNES was designed to perform parabolic flights to create conditions of weightlessness. This knowledge of the functioning of the major institutional actors of Aeronautics and the evolution of the rules of the sector thus allows Hugues Le Cardinal to intervene during training seminars and transmission of know-how for certification of aircraft, airworthiness, and aviation regulations.

  • Dean Kamen
    Advisor

His roles as inventor and advocate are intertwined—his own passion for technology and its practical uses has driven his personal determination to spread the word about technology’s virtues and by so doing to change the culture of the United States.

As an inventor, he holds more than 440 U.S. and foreign patents, many of them for innovative medical devices that have expanded the frontiers of health care worldwide. While still a college undergraduate, he invented the first wearable infusion pump, which rapidly gained acceptance from such diverse medical specialties as chemotherapy, neonatology, and endocrinology. In 1976, he founded his first medical device company, AutoSyringe, Inc., to manufacture and market the pumps. At age 30, he sold that company to Baxter Healthcare Corporation. By then, he had added a number of other infusion devices, including the first wearable insulin pump for diabetics.

Following the sale of AutoSyringe, Inc., he founded DEKA Research & Development Corporation to develop internally generated inventions as well as to provide research and development for major corporate clients. Kamen led DEKA’s development of the HomeChoiceTM peritoneal dialysis system for Baxter International Inc. The HomeChoiceTM system allows patients to be dialyzed in the privacy and comfort of their home and quickly became the worldwide market leader. Kamen also led the development of technology to improve slide preparation for the CYTYC (now Hologic Inc.) ThinPrep® Pap Test.

Kamen-led DEKA teams have also developed critical components of the UVARTM XTSTM System, an extracorporeal photophereisis device marketed by Therakos, a unit of Johnson & Johnson, for treatment of T-Cell lymphoma. An advanced prosthetic arm in development for DARPA should advance the quality of life for returning injured soldiers. Other notable developments include the HydroflexTM surgical irrigation pump for C.R. Bard, the CrownTM stent, an improvement to the original Palmaz-Schatz stent, for Johnson & Johnson, the iBOTTM mobility device, and the Segway® Human Transporter.

Kamen has received many awards for his efforts. Notably, Kamen was awarded the National Medal of Technology in 2000. Presented by President Clinton, this award was in recognition for inventions that have advanced medical care worldwide, and for innovative and imaginative leadership in awakening America to the excitement of science and technology.

Kamen was also awarded the Lemelson-MIT Prize in 2002, and was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in May 2005. He is a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering, and has been a member of the National Academy of Engineering since 1997.

In 2010, Dean hosted the Planet Green television series Dean of Invention. In addition to DEKA, one of Dean’s proudest accomplishments is founding FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization dedicated to motivating the next generation to understand, use and enjoy science and technology. Founded in 1989, this year FIRST® will serve more than 400,000 young people, ages 6 to 18, in more than 80 countries around the globe.
