The flying car has taken off.

AirCar, a prototype hybrid auto-plane, has completed a 35-minute flight between the international airports of Nitra and Bratislava, in Slovakia.

It is equipped with a BMW engine and runs on regular fuel.

Its creator, Slovakian engineer and pilot Stefan Klein, said it can fly about 1,000 km at an altitude of 2,500 meters, and has so far logged 40 hours in the air.
