PAL-V Liberty car autogyro The Netherlands.

In April 2019, PAL-V and Royal NLR (Netherlands Aerospace Centre) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for mutual cooperation to develop an autonomous eVTOL flying car. The two organizations aim for a market introduction within 10 years. PAL-V is currently finalizing the development of the PAL-V Liberty (shown), which it expects to be the world’s first commercial flying car next year. The three-wheeled PAL-V uses a leaning suspension for cornering and a foldable autorotating rotor for flight; it has a separate engine for each mode of travel.

  1. As far as I know, PAL-V uses Rotax engine which obviously doesn’t meet road vehicle emission requirement. The vehicle is motorcycle on the road so it doesn’t have to meet any crash safety requirement, but even motorcycles need to meet emission requirement in all major markets. How can they solve this problem?
