Car can fly - level 2
A man from Slovakia made his childhood dream a reality. He produced a real life flying car.
The car is made out of simple materials and has an original look. It’s already been tested downtown and on the highway, where it reaches up to 130 kilometres per hour (80 miles per hour).
The transformation from a car to a plane takes only a few seconds. Its wings open and you’re ready to take off.
The car could help cut down on the time which people spend at airports, or even be used in places with no airports. The latest model of the car will be produced next year and will be hopefully available to customers, too.
Difficult words: downtown (in the city centre), cut down (reduce).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
