In June 2021, a prototype of a flying car made a 35-minute flight between two Slovakian airports.

Now, the Chinese company Hebei Jianxin Flying Car Technology Company has acquired the exclusive rights to produce and use the ‘AirCar’ for an undisclosed amount, according to the BBC.

The AirCar was developed by the Slovakia-based company KleinVision. Behind KleinVision is Stefan Klein, co-founder and CEO.

Klein has been working on developing flying cars for more than twenty years, starting with the concept of an ‘Aeromobil’ in 1989. In 1996, Klein developed his second concept and prototype.

In 2017, Klein, alongside entrepreneur Anton Zajac, founded KleinVision and started developing what would ultimately become the AirCar.

The prototype passed its flight tests in 2020, and was officially certified as an aircraft in January 2022, making it the world’s first certified flying car.

 "This partnership represents a significant step in our mission to expand global access to revolutionary mobility solutions and drive progress in the industry," said Zajac of the deal.
