In response to DARPA’s broad agency announcement asking for a flying car – a vertical takeoff and landing-capable vehicle that can deal with off road conditions as well as take to the skies, AVX Aircraft has come up with a proposal while releasing some mockups of a duel rotor and ducted fan driven aircraft. This four seater flying car concept, as per AVX Aircraft, will be capable to carry 1,040-lb at 80mph over the ground and 140mph on land.

The flying car can cruise at 10,000ft altitude at max gross weight and travel 250 miles on one tank of fuel. The one-to four-person concept unfolds the rotor blades to covert from road rocket to aircraft in just one minute. Well, the concept seems promising, however; if it’ll suit or reliable and robust enough to meet the practical situations of battlefield remains to be seen
