Airborne in innovation
Making air mobility part of everyday life
We are witnessing a rise in both the world's population and GDP, leading to a surge in mobility requirements. Unfortunately, our current road infrastructure is limited, deficient, or damaged, resulting in extensive commuting hours and wasted time. On top of that, the most efficient route to your destination is often blocked by natural obstacles.
By investing in innovative and sustainable air mobility products, we instantly generate millions of kilometers of infrastructure with just the need for small take-off and landing areas. This approach not only reduces land usage but also rapidly enhances mobility capacity, addressing the growing demands of mobility. Embracing the airborne path is our focus and commitment.
Advanced Air Mobility: One Market, Two segments
Within the realm of Advanced Air Mobility, there exist two distinct segments. The first is the FlyDrive segment, catering to professionals and individuals seeking a seamless door-to-door air mobility experience with flying cars. The second is the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) segment, tailored for passengers who require a platform-to-platform air service. The UAM market makes use of so-called electrical Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) vehicles.
The FlyDrive market segment allows professionals and individuals with a tool to travel from door to door by making use of the air. Typical journeys are between 300-1,000 km.
The Urban Air Mobility offers passengers a service to go from platform to platform similar to bus and metro services. These short flights are from the outskirts of the city to the inner city and typically are not longer than hops of 50 km.
Driven by innovation
Leader in FlyDrive Segment of AAM
PAL-V is shaping the AAM industry with its early start and go-to-market strategy. The PAL-V Liberty has secured road admission and holds the distinction of being the first company worldwide to fix its aviation certification basis, marking a significant milestone.
Existing Technologies, regulations, and infrastructure
Right from the start, our approach revolved around crafting the PAL-V within current regulations, leveraging numerous established technologies to mitigate certification risks and expedite time-to-market. Furthermore, this strategy enables the PAL-V Liberty to seamlessly utilize conventional infrastructure, akin to standard automobiles and aircraft.
Driven by a world-class team from aerospace and engineering firms
Led by CEO & Founder Robert Dingemanse, a former Philips executive and seasoned entrepreneur, PAL-V boasts a skilled and diverse management team. Comprising professionals from prominent aviation entities like Airbus, Boeing, and Fokker GKN, as well as directors from tech giants like Apple, the team brings a wealth of expertise to the table.

We are driven by the vision of making air mobility an accessible and seamless part of everyday life, providing countless individuals with a transformative new way to travel.
Mike van den BroekCOO
With our pioneering technology and relentless commitment to innovation, we are shaping the future of transportation, setting new standards for mobility worldwide.
Safety is key in developing the Liberty. From the start, we built the Liberty to comply with existing regulations. This strategy provides the fastest route to market.
Marco van den BoschCCO
For years, the world has dreamed of flying cars, often showcased in sci-fi films and futuristic illustrations. Now, PAL-V is turning this dream into a tangible reality.
PAL-V is not a dream but the reality of tomorrow. Enabling tomorrow’s reality is what drives me.
Erik van de RuitProject Manager
To develop and market a vehicle such as the PAL-V Liberty requires a team of all kinds of specialists. The fact that everyone is driven to make the vehicle and the company successful creates an incredible synergy.
Monique VerduijnHR Manager
At PAL-V all employees are united by a common goal: to revolutionize the world of transportation and make flying cars an reality for generations to come
Together, changing the future
It's our goal to offer people the most flexible form of mobility and the highest sense of freedom imaginable while enjoying the ride. To achieve this, we dedicated ourselves to safely eliminating the key limitations of a car, small (gyro) plane and helicopter. As a result, we provide our customers with an immediate means to FlyDrive to their destination. By achieving this goal, we don't only provide our customers with a flying car to explore the world from a different perspective, but we are writing history, turning a 100-year-old dream into reality.
Start of the flying car era
The FlyDrive segment will kick off the AAM industry. Allowing people to FlyDrive from any door to any door in the world by making use of flying cars.
Start of Urban Air Mobility Cargo operations
The UAM market will start with cargo operations. Electrical Vertical Take Off and Landing vehicles (eVTOLS) will be flying goods from cargo hubs to the city outskirts and strategic locations to be transported further into the city.
First passengers take to the sky in an eVTOL
Buy your ticket for a ride in the skies, shortening your commute time while enjoying a birds-eye view of the city when stepping in one of the eVTOLs waiting for you to fly you from one station to the other.
Autonomous flight operations
Let yourself be flown by an eVTOL from platform to platform without the need of a pilot, fully autonomous.
