Flying Car – level 2

05-11-2020 07:00

Professor Stefan Klein from the University of Münster designed a flying car. The Slovak company KleinVision made the car and it was time to test it. On October 22, the car took its first flight at an airport in Slovakia, and it flew almost 460 meters in the air.

The car changes from a road car to a flying car in less than three minutes. It weighs 1,100 kilograms, and it can carry a load of 200 kilograms. It has a 1.6-liter engine, and it can fly about 1,000 kilometers without stopping.

According to the company, the flying car is very convenient. People do not need to travel to the airport. They can fly where they need and then they park the car in a car park.

Difficult words: flying (the ability to fly), load (the amount that something or someone can carry), convenient (easy or comfortable to use).
