Referring to the future of flying car technology, Haluk Bayraktar added: trend The trend in the automotive sector has turned to electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles without driver. Now the world's new target in this area, 'flying cars.' This is the race to prepare for the future… We, as Baykar, started R & D studies in this field.
Over the last 10 years, 130 has developed a different electric vertical take-off concept. There are technology initiatives in the world close to 200 that are still working in this field. Many major companies and technology initiatives, from Airbus to Boeing, are already preparing to keep the future intact. To date, venture capital has invested more than $ 1 billion in this area. More software, electronics, avionics, power systems and artificial intelligence come to the fore.
If we start to advance R & D work in Turkey after year 10 we can be one of the leading countries in the world in this area. Otherwise, assembly and import will be our destiny.
