PAL-V 'Flying Car' Gains First German Showroom

European Design Sprints to Public Footprint in Bid for German Mindshare

"The long-awaited future of transportation has arrived" says PAL-V, "the pioneer in Advanced Air Mobility", as it opens their first showroom in Germany.

They say the new development is similarly significant for the country, as the "first-ever showroom dedicated to Flying cars". The "dream of soaring through the skies in a sleek and innovative flying car is no longer a fantasy", they add, though regulatory hurdles remain before buyers can simply sign and fly. If nothing else, however, the development puts a point at how far along PAL-V is in bringing their aircraft to market. Where similar competitors with "flying cars" - better understood as flying trikes, given the nigh impossible task of wedding crashworthiness auto standards with airworthy gross weights - remain in the initial phases of testing, PAL-V is out there signing deals and decorating dealerships. That head start helps to embed their company as the first to market, and hopefully first in mind when the early adopters set their eyes on a shiny new toy.

"We believe that the future of transportation lies in the skies, and with our showroom now open in Munich, we are one step closer to turning this belief into a widespread reality," said Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V. "Flying cars are no longer a distant dream; they are here, they are real, and they are ready to revolutionize the way we travel."

The showroom currently contains a single example of the PAL-V flying car, allowing buyers to see and feel the machine in the flesh as they imagine a purchase of their own. Beyond that, there isn't too much to see, some baubles, some paint samples, and a few brochures, but it's further along than the competition, and in this biz, that's what counts at this stage in the game.
