The PAL-V ONE in flight is an autogyro or gyrocopter, with a foldable pusher propeller providing forward thrust and a free-spinning rotor providing lift. Directional stability is provided by twin boom-mounted tailfins.
It has a tricycle undercarriage with relatively large wheels.
On the ground, the propeller and rotor are stopped and power is diverted to the wheels, allowing it to travel as a three-wheeled car. Unusually, it leans into turns like a motorcycle, a solution pioneered by the Carver vehicle, also produced by a Dutch company.
A prototype model has been test flown in 2012. The company is seeking funds to develop the type for production. Estimated unit price in 2012 was around $300,000.
In May 2014 the manufacturer announced the flying car will be taken in production, with an exclusive limited edition 45 units at 500,000 euro each, with orders being taken from later that year, and first deliveries in 2016/2017.
In a press release in February 2017, PAL-V announced that they have started selling PAL-V Liberty Pioneer Edition (At that time the expected price was €499.000, or US$599,000,- (excl. taxes, ex works)). The first delivery was then expected to be in 2018. After delivering 90 Pioneer Editions, PAL-V will start shipping PAL-V Liberty Sport (Expected basic price without option: €299.000,-/US$399,000,- (excl. taxes, ex works))
The production model was first publicly shown at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland on 6 March 2018. CEO CEO Robert Dingemanse stated that he expected all certification requirements to be completed in 2019. At that time the projected price was US$600,000.
