Electric flying car receives authorization to test for the first time

California startup Alef Aeronautics backed by SpaceX has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to test its vehicle on the road and in the air.

The all-electric flying car is priced at $300,000 and is already accepting pre-orders. SpaceX-backed startup Alef Aeronautics becomes the first company in history authorized to conduct such tests. It has been granted a special official airworthiness certificate for the Model A by the FAA.

CEO Jim Dukhovny said, “It brings us closer to being able to offer people a faster, more environmentally friendly way to get around, saving individuals and businesses hours every week. This is one small step for airplanes, one giant leap for cars.”

FAA restrictions have limited where and for what purpose the vehicle is allowed to fly. The company plans for the car to be street-capable and to take off vertically, so that it can fit into urban infrastructure for driving and parking.

The car is expected to be able to carry up to two people, with a range of 200 miles on the road and 110 miles in flight. So far, 440 people have already paid a deposit to be the first to own the flying vehicle. Last year, CEO Dukhovny told the media that the launch of these flying cars would come in 2025.

Ye will count on the controversial Dov Charney as CEO of Yeezy.
