AirStage - When Cars learn to fly

Hey Guys

A new addition to the never ending dicussions about Mobility in our Future ... flying Cars!

Taken from their Homepage: Presentation of the Opel Astra – Only flying is better[...] The show ended with an eye catcher – “Only flying is better” – that was Opel’s advertising slogan. To give that slogan new meaning, the new Astra GTC floated out of the top of the “Gasometers”. It was actually a deceivingly realistic 1:1 scale model complete with headlights. The custom car weighed about 5kg (11 pounds). An Airstage employee from Schlaitdorf flew the scale model with a remote control. The founders of Airstage, Rainer and Günther Mugrauer, have been making anything their customers wish fly for about 8 years. This ranges from an everyday zeppelin all the way to a flying RV trailer. Rainer Mugrauer’s training as an aerospace manufacturer has given his so called light-frame models excellent flying characteristics. Not even the sky’s the limit!

A Vauxhall Astra VXR was already at Top Gear in Episode 2 of Season 7, check it out!
