Our Take on the AeroMobil 4.0 STOL


AeroMobil's 4.0 STOL concept is very defined, as the construction of AeroMobil's website shows. However, no target first flight date has been set yet, and the AeroMobil team is still completing testing of their 3.0 STOL prototype. The company is already accepting orders for the 4.0, and intends on utilizing lessons learned from the 4.0 to roll into their VTOL aircraft, the AeroMobil 5.0. Monitor the developments of the 3.0 STOL for a good measure of how successful the company will be moving forward.
