Chennai startup unveils Asia’s ‘first’ flying car concept, aviation minister reviews model


A Chennai-based startup introduced the conceptual model of a hybrid flying car. The model of the flying car was reviewed by Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday.

Speaking to Twitter, Jyotiraditya Scindia said he was delighted to have been introduced to the concept model that would soon become “Asia’s first hybrid flying car”.

“Once this takes off, the flying cars will be used to transport people and goods, as well as to provide emergency medical services. Best wishes to the team,” Jyotiraditya Scindia tweeted.

The hybrid car model, Vinata, was developed by Vinata Aeromobility. Startup CEO Yogesh Iyer said the name was chosen after extensive research and meant “mother of all birds.”

“Vinata comes from an ancient myth. We are working with a flying car, so we did a lot of research and decided with Vinata what means mother of birds, to be precise, Garuda’s mother,” Yogesh Iyer said.
