More than 100 cars which can both drive and fly are coming to Dubai by 2026.

The vehicles are like something out of science-fiction as they’re capable of driving on land and, within two minutes, can take to the skies.

Dubai-based company Aviterra has ordered the batch of high-tech vehicles which users will need to take months of training to operate properly.

The PAL-V Liberty cars need a 120-metre strip to take off and can fly up to 11,000 feet in the air while operating on the same fuel used in standard cars.

Initially, the flying cars will be for private and government use and will be used only by people with a private pilot licence.

It is capable of travelling medium and long distances and could see users drive to one of the 40,000+ airstrips in the world.

The car is a gyroplane, using a rotor similar to a helicopter at the back of the car which springs out as it’s being converted into flying mode.

It is expected that we won’t see the Liberty Flying Car on Dubai roads until late 2025 or 2026 as the General Civil Aviation Authority of the UAE, International Air Transport Association and European Aviation Safety Agency all need to certify the vehicle before the UAE government approves it.

While these cars are initially for government use, there have been recent moves announced to introduce flying taxis to Dubai by the end of 2025.

And for those who commute between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, there will also be a new flying taxi between the two cities which will make commuting as little as 30 minutes.
