Dubai-based company Aviterra has placed an order for over 100 flying cars, scheduled to be launched in 2025-26. Owned by private jet charter Jetex, Aviterra ordered two-seater PAL-V’s Liberty flying cars to provide last-mile solutions to residents.

Mouhanad Wadaa, Aviterra's managing director, emphasized the convenience of the PAL-V Liberty, stating it's a full car that can be parked in a regular parking lot or villa. He highlighted its dual functionality, where it can transition from driving on land to flying in just 2 minutes, requiring a 120-meter strip for takeoff and capable of flying up to 11,000 feet high. Moreover, the flying car utilizes the same fuel as regular cars, enhancing its practicality for daily use.

The PAL-V Liberty, dubbed as the world’s first true flying car, combines features of a gyroplane and a car, providing a solution to travel independently of congested roads and enhancing travel flexibility. With a flight range of 500 km and a maximum airspeed of 180 km/h, the Liberty significantly reduces commute and travel times.

Aviterra's investment arm, Loggia Investment, has strategically invested in PAL-V and established partnerships for the Middle East and Africa region.

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are spearheading the adoption of last-mile mobility solutions. Dubai recently signed a deal with US-based Joby Aviation to operate air taxis for six years. Additionally, US-based Archer and UAE’s Falcon Aviation inked a deal to construct vertiports in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for flying vehicles.

Initially, flying cars will be utilized for private and government purposes, with individuals undergoing several months of training before being authorized to drive and fly them. Aviterra aims for the vehicle's rollout by the end of 2025 or 2026, contingent on final certification from the General Civil Aviation Authority of the UAE, International Air Transport Association (IATA), and European Aviation Safety Agency. The cost of flying cars is expected to be approximately 10% of a helicopter ride, with operational costs also estimated to be 10% of a helicopter.
