According to start-up Alf Aeronautics, its “Model A” is the first flying vehicle that can run on public roads and park like regular FAA-licensed cars.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has confirmed that the vehicle has been certified airworthy for research, development and exhibition purposes. According to Alef Aeronautics, the “Type A” has the distinction of being the only aircraft – a take-off and landing vehicle that can drive and park like normal cars.
“We are excited to receive this certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. This brings us one step closer to providing people with greener and faster commutes, saving individuals and businesses several hours a week. “It’s one small step for airplanes and one giant leap for cars,” said Jim Duchovny, CEO of the startup.
The company has been operating on Model A since 2015. It was inspired by the movie Back to the Future Part II. The startup is accepting pre-orders for the car, which will be officially launched in 2025 at a price of around PLN 300,000. dollar.
UPI notes that the “Model A” has not yet been approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music. This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
