Russian Inventor’s Flying Car

Alexander Begak and friends

RUSSIAN INVENTOR’S FLYING CAR: A young Russian inventor, Alexander Begak, has developed a flying car that can travel 50 mph on land, 100 mph in the air, and has a range of over 2,000 miles on a tiny tank of fuel. The car weighs less than most of its potential pilots. It also has the capacity to remain flying even at very slow speeds — as low as 9 mph — giving it enhanced safety and usefulness for animal tracking and other specialized purposes. Its vulnerability to high winds means there would be days when it would be grounded, however.
