Flying car technology to be tested in regional NSW to ‘overcome tyranny of distance’

Regional New South Wales will be the test site for ‘flying car’ technology, with officials saying advances in the sector could help those in regional areas overcome the “tyranny of distance”.

Aerospace company AMSL Aero (SYD4) ( will test its electric Vertical Take Off and Landing vehicles (V-TOLs) at Narromine’s Aerodrome from next year.

Deputy Premier John Barilaro said he hoped the flying car would revolutionise the transport industry, enabling people to more easily travel to rural destinations that did not have an airport.

“The potential benefits this technology can deliver will overcome the tyranny of distance that we face in regional NSW,” he said.

“It means people can easily travel to jobs, visit friends and family in remote locations and deliver tourists to hard-to-reach outback havens.”
