New technology means science fiction is becoming science fact. We have watched movies about a future with flying cars. This week, we saw a real one - the AirCar. It did a test flight between two airports in Slovakia. It flew at a height of 2,500 metres and a speed of 185kph. The 90km journey took 35 minutes. AirCar is from a company called Klein Vision. It said AirCar was no longer just an idea. It said science fiction is now "a reality".

AirCar is road legal. It turns into an aircraft in less than three minutes. On the recent test, the company's CEO landed it at Bratislava Airport. He then pushed a button to turn it into a sports car and drove it into the city. He said the flight was "normal" and "very pleasant". A new AirCar will have a better engine. It will have a cruising speed of 300kph and a range of 1,000 kilometres. It will also have four seats.
