ROOSEVELT, Utah — PAL-V has opened its first Flying Car school in North America to introduce prospective customers to flying in a vehicle similar to the PAL-V Liberty Flying Car.
“We are very excited to make this announcement today and even more enthused that we are going to be working with gyroplane training guru, Phil Harwood and the International Association of Professional Gyroplane Training (IAPGT) to do whatever we can to help create standardized flight training programs around the world to ensure our clients are both safe and proficient at flying their PAL-V,” said Robert Dingemanse, CEO of PAL-V.
“The most important thing for PAL-V is to ensure the safety of its clients is at the forefront of every decision we make. For that reason we are in the process of selecting our home base for North American clients flight training requirements. We are currently in discussions with two first class facilities to enable us to hone in on the best quality opportunity,” said Mark Jennings-Bates, VP Sales for PAL-V in North America, adding, “The fact that clients get to learn to fly their flying car in a mountain setting is simply added value and will also serve to demonstrate how stable the PAL-V flying car platform is in mountain winds.”
While pre-sales of the PAL-V Liberty continue in North America, the company expects that phase to be complete towards the end of the year.
That makes it necessary to commence flight training and establish a network of regional training opportunities in strategic locations in North America, the first of which will be in Utah, company officials noted.
The PAL-V flying car uses gyroplane technology for stable and safe flight and as such, clients will be learning to fly on modern gyroplane equipment.
