European Flying Car Association (EFCA)
The mission of the association is to represent the interests of the flying car owners and promote the use of flying cars in Europe. As a consumer organization, we can provide reviews of different flying car models and collect feedback from our members. Our definition of a flying car is broad and includes all 'roadable aircraft', thus also flying vehicles that look like cars but that are classified as motorcycles on the road, from a regulatory point of view. The flying car is a new type of vehicle, many challenges and opportunities exist on a practical level: new regulations, airfield access, timesharing, insurance, drone collision, self-flying autonomous cars, vehicle inspection and maintenance, etc. Although we only represent private civilian owners, companies and associations, we look forward to collaborate as well with the public sector to bring innovation to services like ambulance and search&rescue operations.
Basic Membership is free. You can become individual member of the EFCA or join one of the national associations that are already member. Members will receive latest news from the flying car sector distributed by EFCA and invitations for special events organized by EFCA. We provide legal advice on request to members who would like to use flying cars in a commercial activity in Europe and on a national level (legal advice provided by our national member associations in this case). Geographical Europe consists out of 51 independent countries, including the Member States of the European Union, the Accession Candidates, as well as Andorra, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Moldova, Norway, Russia, San Marino, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine. We have also individual members from outside Europe, for example people living in the United States who travel frequently to Europe.
A Board, democratically elected by the members, manages EFCA. Advisory members may attend the Board meetings (without voting rights).
