KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 20 — Works to construct Malaysia’s first flying car is 85 per cent complete, according to Entrepreneur Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Md Yusof.
The prototype of the flying car according to him, is currently being built by a Malaysian company in Japan, as the economic powerhouse has the supporting ecosystem for the flying car industry.
“I am going to Japan in September for the Aviation Conference and I hope to get to see the almost complete (flying) car that we will be going to bring back towards the end of the year,” he told reporters after attending the SME Leadership Conference 2019 here, today.
The ministry he said, is in discussions with various ministries involved in the aviation sector to create available space for flying cars in Malaysia, similar to efforts undertaken in several other countries, to complement skills of the local entrepreneurs to develop a flying car.
“Flying car is a private initiative. We don’t control them (investors) on what they want to do, but we need to create the (flying car) industry in Malaysia,” he added.
On whether the country’s first flying car would be launched by year-end, Mohd Redzuan said, it would depend on Malaysia’s ecosystem for flying cars, especially in term of availability to fly at that time.
Menteri KDK tok-kok as usual.
I bet that KDK car would most probably be a discarded Jap project sold off to gullible Malaysia just as Proton was.
If the car is a private venture, why is the Menteri KDK bagitu sibuk? Kerbau lah.
And who the Eff will be flying that KDK car? I feel sorry for the Department of Civil Aviation, in particular Air Traffic and the Licensing Section including the medical regulatory unit - will they permit a 94-year old man to fly it (such an aged veteran driving cars is already illegal and bad enough), as if they could stop him if such a car materialises?
