Turkish company says prototype of national flying car being developed
Selçuk Bayraktar, the son-in-law of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the technical director of Baykar Makina, shared photos of the company’s efforts to develop a flying car in a series of posts on Twitter on Tuesday.
Bayraktar said the photos showed the early stages of a research and development process that would take years to develop the flying car, named CEZERİ.
The businessman said the company planned to demonstrate the prototype in September at Teknofast, an aviation, space and technology fair held in Istanbul.
Bayraktar also asked his followers to share their opinions over the four different designs developed for CEZERİ.
Baykar Makina has become a leading defence and technology company in Turkey due to its success in manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles.
