Inspired by the dreamy books about flying by French authors Jules Verne and Antoine de Saint Exupery, Slovak designer and engineer Stefan Klein has been honing his flying machine since the early 1990s.
...
Klein told AFP.
"Flying's in my blood - my grandfather and my father flew ultra-light aircrafts and I got my pilot's license before I was old enough to drive a car," said Klein, who has designed cars for BMW, Volkswagen and Audi and now teaches at the Bratislava-based Academy of Fine Arts and Design.

Klein and his team are currently working on the next generation of Aeromobil that will go into production in a few months and hopefully receive Slovak Ultra Light Aircraft Certification (SFUL).
"Would-be users would have to follow the legislation already in place for ultra light aircraft," SFUL president Federation Milan Ciba told AFP.
"Pilot/drivers will need to have both a driver's and pilot's licence with at least 25 flying hours," he added.
An enthusiastic pilot himself, Klein remains down to earth when looking to the future.
"I don't expect Aeromobil to go into mass production, it will always be an alternative means of transport," Klein said.
"It can, however, be very interesting for countries with vast areas lacking infrastructure like Russia, China or Australia," he added.

Stefan Klein, the founder of Aeromobil, recently showed off the most advanced flying car yet developed, earning a standing ovation from the 5,000-strong audience at the Pioneers Festival in Vienna. Just slightly bigger than a van, with a Formula 1 racer-like cockpit and folding wings resembling those of a dragonfly, Aeromobil 3.0 may eventually be the way to rediscover the joy of challenging driving in a future interconnected world. After all, says Klein, why not trade 2D space for 3D â€" just because we can.

Stefan Klein, co-founder and chief designer at Slovakian firm Aeromobil, caught the flying car bug as a child after watching the French filmFantomas se Dechaine, featuring a Citroen DS that could turn into a rocket-powered plane.
A graduate of the Slovak University of Technology and a former head of research projects for Audi, Volkswagen and BMW at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, he comes from a family of aviators and has spent about 20 years trying to make his dream come true.

Stefan Klein, founder of the Department of Transport Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Slovakia, designed the personal transportation vehicle. Although Klein has been working on the concept since 1989, it wasn't until 2010 that things got real: He commercialized the project by starting AeroMobil.
