Turkey successfully tests its first indigenous flying car ‘Cezeri’, named after Ismail al-Jazari, a renowned 12th-century Muslim engineer and polymath.
According to the manufacturer’s official statement, Cezeri was successfully tested in Istanbul on Sept. 15.
Manufacturer Baykar in a statement said that designed and manufactured by Turkish engineers, Cezeri ascended to 10 meters (32.8 feet) in its 230 kilograms (507 pounds) prototype flight tests.
“After smart cars, the revolution in automotive technology will be in flying cars. So from this point of view, we are preparing for tomorrow’s races, rather than today’s,” he added.
