The PALV - a new vehicle to lead a revolution in personal transportation

A Dutch entrepreneur, working with a design engineering firm, has developed a three-wheeled vehicle that travels both on the ground and in the air, via a set of unfolding helicopter blades. The PALV (personal air and land vehicle), powered by a rotary engine, has a top ground speed of 125 mph (120 mph in the air) and can get between 60 and 70 miles per gallon of conventional gasoline. It can take off at close range, and can land vertically. No word on price or production at this point, but we’ll pass along any info we can get.
