Turkey Successfully Tests Its 1St Flying Car

Cezeri ascends to 32.8 ft in prototype flight tests, says Istanbul based manufacturer.

Turkey's first indigenous flying car, called Cezeri, was successfully tested in Istanbul, its manufacturer said on Tuesday.
Designed and manufactured by Turkish engineers, Cezeri ascended to 10 meters (32.8 feet) in its 230 kilograms (507 pounds) prototype flight tests, manufacturer Baykar said in a statement.
"We will make more advanced prototypes in the upcoming process, and perform flights with a human [on board]," Selcuk Bayraktar, the chief technology officer, was "ed as saying.
Bayraktar added that it would take an estimated 10-15 years for Cezeri to hit the roads and 3-4 years to use for recreational purposes such as quad bikes in rural areas.
"After smart cars, the revolution in automotive technology will be in flying cars. So from this point of view, we are preparing for tomorrow's races, rather than today's," he added.
Last September, Cezeri was displayed at Teknofest, the Turkish technology and aerospace fair, in the metropolitan city of Istanbul.
The car is named after Ismail al-Jazari, a renowned 12th-century Muslim engineer and polymath.
Baykar, established in 1984, produces armed and non-armed drones, control systems, simulators, and avionics systems.
