ASKA(™) 'Drive and Fly' Private Commuter Vehicle available for Pre-order
The World's First Flying Car Showroom Opens in Silicon Valley
By: ASKA by NFT Inc.
The showroom is located in Los Altos, the heart of Silicon Valley, and is the world's first sales venue for a flying car. The ASKA™ showroom provides a totally new personalized customer buying experience, with demonstration models of the ASKA™ and a learning center about air mobility.
ASKA™ is aimed at discerning customers who want the freedom to travel on the road or in the air. The four-seater ASKA™ drives on the road like a car, capable of vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), as well as short takeoff and landing (STOL), and flies like an aircraft. The deluxe private commuter vehicle enables people to live in a quality environment outside urban areas and to quickly and safely travel to the city center – door to door.
"Our pre-order customers are very excited about the benefits of air mobility and already know how they want to use ASKA™. They want to significantly reduce travel time to their favorite destinations and to quickly and easily commute within 250 miles of their home," says Guy Kaplinsky, CoFounder/CEO.

Optimal structural performance and integrity
The revolutionary aerodynamic design (patent pending) enables ASKA™ to provide an excellent driving experience on the road and fly safely and efficiently in the air. The initial limited model of ASKA™ has a flight range of up to 250 miles powered by electric motors, and is equipped with a range extender as a redundant safety system.
People board ASKA™ at their home, on the street or in a parking lot, and drive it like a regular car. The size of a large SUV in drive mode, the ASKA™ is a performing road vehicle. To easily transition to flight mode, ASKA™ lifts off vertically in a designated vertipad launch space – no need to travel to a special air terminal or wait in line with other travelers. As the wings open, ASKA™ transitions to smooth flight, programmed to the driver's destination. After safely transitioning to a vertical landing in a vertipad, ASKA™ can be driven as a car, or be parked in a standard parking lot, on the street, or in a garage. ASKA™ flies using semi-autonomous technologies but pilot training will be needed to operate ASKA™ in the air.
Designed for the highest level of safety
ASKA™'s development and flight-testing are being conducted in accordance with FAA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) guidelines for certification. Full-scale flight demonstrations will be taking place in 2022. NFT is part of NASA's Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign.
