The first electric flying car has received the necessary approval to begin tests on land and in the air.
Alef Aeronautics, a California-based automaker, said in a press release that it received a Special Airworthiness Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the Model A. According to the startup, this is the first approval for a flight-worthy car. Supported by companies like SpaceX.
Alef CEO Jim Dukhovny said, “We provide people with environmentally friendly and faster transportation. This is a small step for airplanes and a giant leap for cars.”
The Flying Car Can Also Go On Land
Due to FAA restrictions developed due to the unprecedented capabilities of flying cars, Alef said her certification limits the places and purpose it is allowed to fly.
The company was founded to produce the first flyingcar capable of both street driving and vertical takeoff. The cars are designed to fit the existing urban infrastructure for driving and parking.
The flying car can take off vertically or horizontally and can carry up to two people. It is expected to have a road range of 320 km and a flight range of 120 km.

Customers planning to purchase the car can pay a deposit of $150 to join the general queue or $1,500 to gain priority access when deliveries begin. The price of the car was determined as 300,000 dollars.
In December, Dukhovny told CNBC Make It that customers can expect to see their cars in the sky by 2025.
