CANBERRA, June 22 (NNN-AGENCIES) – A start-up announced, it will hold flying car races in the South Australian outback before the end of 2020.
Airspeeder, which is based in South Australia and London, developed flying cars that use drone technology to hover and manoeuvre.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Airspeeder co-founder, Matthew Pearson, said that, 2020 was a significant year for the industry, with the company set to host full-scale flying car races in the SA outback.
“With electric aviation, with the drone industry, with the autonomous vehicle industry boom — all the technology that makes autonomous electric cars possible, are making the electric flying cars industry,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Sunday.
“A helicopter has thousands of moving parts, and a single point of failure which makes them very expensive to maintain,” Pearson said.
