European Flying Car Association (EFCA)

Objectives

The mission of the association is to represent the interests of the flying car owners and promote the use of flying cars in Europe and globally. As a consumer organization, we can provide reviews of different flying car / air taxi models and collect feedback from our members. Our definition of a flying car is broad: it includes all roadable aircraft and VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) drones. Last but not least, it includes also the upcoming electrical version, so-called eVTOL. The flying car is a new type of vehicle, many challenges and opportunities exist on a practical level: new regulations, infrastructure concerns like airfield access, creation of new take-off zones, access to electric charging infrastructure, autonomous flying air taxis, vehicle inspection, insurance 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.
