We already presented flying cars – whereas they are real transformers or cars fitted with a paraglider wing. That is the case of the Vaylon Pégase that has been presented at the French Military show EuroSatory!


Pégase/Pegasus is an all terrain vehicle / buggy fitted with a (silent) propeller and a paraglider wing, therefore, it is road and air legal. 



The company Vaylon based in Strasbourg worked for 5 years on this project of flying car, the first prototype was developed in late 2013 and made its first flight a few days ago before the opening of the show. Other flights are planned for 2014 with a launch the following year at an estimated price of € 100,000. 
Its versatility makes it a military vehicle of choice! The project is supported by the Ministry of Defence.
