About the Competition

This concept is still in development phase today, and will certainly be carried into the future. It is widely believed that flying cars will be among the vehicles of the future.
This competition aims to deliver a concept for a “Flying Car” that can navigate safely from one destination to another in human-populated areas, including densely populated regions, or between residential areas.
