Flying Car Era is about to Begin

Published

Countries around the world are beginning to fully develop flying cars.

A FLYING CAR IS A FLYING PERSONAL VEHICLE (PAV). IT LOOKS LIKE A CAR OR HELICOPTER, BUT YOU CAN RUN ON THE ROAD AND FLY WITH YOUR WINGS SPREAD IN THE RIGHT SPACE. IN THIS RESPECT, IT IS DISTINGUISHED FROM HELICOPTERS AND DRONES.

AT THE HOLLYWOOD SCI-FI FILM BLADE RUNNER 2049, WHICH LAUNCHED IN 2017, PEOPLE COULD SEE THE FLYING CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME, ALTHOUGH ON THE SCREEN. THIS IS BECAUSE FLYING CARS HAVE EMERGED AS A MEANS OF LAND IN THE CITY, AND THERE IS LESS NOISE AND FREE MOVEMENT, ALLOWING FREELY TRAVEL BETWEEN BUILDINGS.

The world leader in the development of flying cars is uber, an American automaker that is currently developing a super lift. French aircraft maker Airbus, Britain’s Rolls-Royce, and luxury sports car company Aston Martin have also become fierce competitors.

Hyundai’s engines were the first to start in Korea, but recently, large Korean airlines have jumped into the latter market. Global automotive companies around the world are focusing their efforts on developing flying cars due to its economy.

Morgan Stanley, an official of the US investment bank predicted that “by 2040, the market for urban aviation mobility will reach $ 1.5 trillion (about 1.8 trillion won). Global companies that are in the preventive market are announcing their commercialization in 2025. However, it is true that no one can guarantee the moment because administrative and technical difficulties continue to block the front.

flying cars of various models appeared

Flying vehicles are divided into two main types, a drone helicopter and a patrol helicopter, depending on the possible vertical take-off and landing.

IN THE CASE OF DRONE HELICOPTERS, THE SAME APPLIES WHEN LANDING, USING PROPELLERS OR ROTORS TO RAISE THE WIND VERTICALLY AND TAKE OFF. THIS IS ALSO CALLED VERTICAL TAKE-OFF AND LANDING AIRCRAFT (VTOL). NO TRACK IS REQUIRED AND AUTONOMOUS FLIGHT THROUGH REMOTE ADJUSTMENT IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT A PILOT AFTER TAKE-OFF.

by comparison, in the case of a guard aircraft type, it runs on the runway and takes off using wing lift when throttle is engaged, making it similar to an airplane. vertical take-off and landing are not possible, which has the disadvantage of requiring a runway. on the other hand, the landing can be driven like a normal car.

Today, the flying car market is home to some of the world’s leading aviation and automotive companies. Along the way, various models were applied to the characteristics of the flying cars. However, regardless of the variety of models, the core components of flying cars are batteries, and experts predict that the development of fuel cells will be the fiercest competitive factor for companies.

flying car variables are hydrogen fuel cells

There are still technical challenges to overcome in the commercialization of flying cars on air roads. batteries are a part that represents a significant part of the weight of a flying car. therefore, it must be small and light. However, if you want to damage more than 200 kilograms of flying cars and fly, the battery will naturally be large. resolving this contradiction remains a challenge.

The alternative to this is hydrogen fuel cells. A fuel cell is a battery method that separates hydrogen gas into hydrogen ions and electrons (H +) (e-) through an oxidative reaction, and again combines electrons, hydrogen ions, and oxygen through a reaction of reduction to create a current flow in the process of making water.

Hydrogen fuel cells are more efficient than their size and can be dispersed, making them useful for flying cars that use more than six engines. With only three technologies: battery, control and storage, there is no problem to apply the flying car.

however, experts say that “mass hydrogen production is difficult and the unique risks still make it difficult to build a storage infrastructure.” In the era of flying cars, future passengers want a nice and comfortable flight with a cup of coffee. development challenges depend solely on developers who are in the market.
