This car that can fly successfully made it across the English Channel. From French company Vaylon, the flying car -- dubbed 'Pegase' or the Pegasus -- was developed with military purposes in mind. The startup received a 700,000 euro Defence Military Grant as well as help from the French Special Forces during the testing process.
During an approximately 50 minute trip, pilot Bruno Vezzoli drove the car that can fly from Ambleteuse to Dover. The off-road buggy has paragliding gear attached to it, allowing the flying vehicle to access difficult terrain it wouldn't otherwise be able to reach.
Using a combination of silent gliding and powered flight, the Pegasus has a promising future in the military, humanitarian missions and potentially even civilian uses as well.
