A number of carplanes (aka: roadable aircraft, flying car) have recently appeared on the market or will be appearing soon. The purpose of this site is to contrast and compare these vehicles and to provide the latest information on each. It is an unbiased site that is not funded by any of the manufacturers.

Below is a summary of currently available carplanes, or carplanes that are expected (by me) to hit the market sometime in the next 5 years. There are 10 real competitors and I have ranked them from 1 (best) to 10 (worst) based on their relative overall attractiveness (to me). We have a new carplane in the mix! A Slovakian vehicle called the Aeromobil. It is a 2-seat, 4-wheeled enclosed airplane that has actually flown a little. Still a prototype so no price or delivery date but it looks really cool (www.aeromobil.com) with a 124 mph air speed and 430 mile range. I am off to Saudi Arabia to present a paper on carplanes at the International Road Federation Conference and I will add the Aeromobile to this site when I return.
