Turkey tested its first native flying car, called the Cezeri, and it looks straight out of a gripping Hollywood sci-fi movie. It actually reminds you a bit of Tom Cruise’s flying ship, which was used in Oblivion and released in 2013, except for the colossal circular knives. Cezeri was designed and produced by Turkish engineers and was successfully tested on September 15 in Istanbul. It has been said: it is still a prototype and there is still no plan for its impending launch.
Baykar, which made the Cezeri prototype, said the company wanted to make more prototypes for further testing. In Turkish media, CTO Selcuk Bayraktar said:
“We are making more advanced prototypes in the upcoming process and performing flights with a human [on board].”
Bayraktar added that it is estimated that it will take 10 to 15 years for Cezeri to venture out on the roads and 3 to 4 years to use them for recreational purposes as a four-wheel drive in rural areas.
“After smart cars, the revolution in car technology will take place in flying cars. From this point of view, we are preparing for tomorrow’s race rather than today, ”he added.
Last September, Cezeri was exhibited at Teknofest, the Turkish technology and aviation trade fair, in the capital city of Istanbul.
The car is named after Ismail al-Jazari, a well-known 12th-century Muslim engineer and polymath.
Baykar, founded in 1984, manufactures armed and unarmed drones, control systems, simulators and aviation systems.
