Aeromobil - Peter Fisk

For Stefan Klein it was his life's passion.
When he retired from designing cars, the inventor set his mind to adding wings. Stefan Klein is a quiet unassuming guy, with degrees in both mechanical engineering and fine arts. He wanted to be a sculptor but studied design, going on to work for Audi, BMW and Volkswagen. But flying has always been in his family ... "My father and grandfather were both pilots, and soon I learnt to fly too. This has always been my passion". Since 1990 he has pursued his dream of building a flying car, "To me it is something at the intersection of technology and art" he said. When Stefan Klein heard that Aeromobil had been voted winners of the Gamechangers Awards - firstly for Central and Eastern Europe, and subsequently in a global vote too, he wanted to meet. The opportunity came when I was delivering a keynote on innovation leadership at Big Ideas CEE in Bratislava. On hearing that I was nearby, he and Juray jumped into their car (yes the flying car!) and were soon arriving at my hotel. They walked on stage to great local acclaim and were eager to tell their story. aeromobil stefan klein meeting Over the last couple of years we have become good friends, doing events together across the world. At one recent in Istanbul, Stefan joined me on stage to tell the story of his innovation. He wanted to showcase the car too, although it had been held up at customs. Inventor Stefan Klein was flying the blue-and-white airborne automobile 900 feet (270 metres) off the ground when he was forced to deploy a parachute to slow its descent. Klein escaped unharmed but the flying car was damaged in what the company called an "emergency landing".
