The partnership was marked by the signature of a contract between the two companies by their respective CEO's during a ceremony held at the ASL premises in Antwerp, Belgium on August 27, 2019. For this special occasion, the PAL-V Liberty Pioneer edition was presented in front of the ASL Hangar.
Through this partnership, ASL will become the official and exclusive dealer of PAL-V in Belgium. Both companies are also exploring possibilities to incorporate pilot training through ASL's Approved Training Organisation (ATO) as the partnership evolves.
PAL-V is currently in the final phase of certifying world’s first commercial flying car. The PAL-V Liberty will enter the market in 2021. ASL and PAL-V will also jointly present the PAL-V Liberty during the tenth edition of Zoute Grand Prix (October 10-13), a major car rally event organised in the fashionable city of Knokke-Heist (Belgium). Visitors and participants of the rally will have the chance to discover the unique concept of PAL-V and learn more about the future of air & road mobility solutions by meeting with representatives of both ASL group and PAL-V.
This project marks an important milestone in the development of ASL, as the company strives to be at the edge of innovation in terms of personal and business air mobility solutions. The entire (business) aviation industry agrees on the idea that we are at the edge of a major revolution in terms of (urban) air mobility. ASL Group is now extending their portfolio with a vehicle that can offer their customers with a last mile solution. PAL-V will open the Personal Air Mobility market by bringing a fully certified flying car to the market in 2021.
