Winged Car for Training Pilots Built
Flying "Tavria"

An inventor from Kaluga has built a winged car for simulation and practicing of take-off and landing.

      The car body belongs to "Tavria", a modification of Ukraininan ZAZ car, very common in the Soviet Union. The inventor based his development on four-cantilever design, which is considered to be more safe and reliable than existing two-cantilever airplanes.

      The car accelerates up to 90 km per hour, than a pilot sends it to the air - 2.5-3 meters above the ground, and the car flies a couple of hundreds of meters. Then its speed gradually drops, and the car smoothly lands.

      The flying car can be used for training pilots of civil and military air forces.
