The first episode of “The Jetsons” premiered in 1962, and 61 years later, Alef’s Aeronautics received certification from the FAA to test its Model A flying car.

The good people over at Earn Your Leisure (EYL) recently posted about the California-based start-up getting approval to test the first flying vehicle.

“EYL” captioned their post:

California-based startup Alef Aeronautics has received the FAA’s Special Airworthiness Certification for its Model A flying car, signaling a milestone in personal aviation.

The Model A, priced at $300,000, is equipped with drone-like internal propellers and offers a range of 200 miles over land and 110 in the air.

Alef’s unique selling proposition lies in the Model A’s driveway-friendly design with vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) capabilities.

Alef’s vehicle contrasts with most eVTOLs nearing production, which aim for aerial transportation services, as it is meant for private ownership and personal use both on the ground and in the air.

The idea of turning drivers into pilots is scary.
