    A Dutch company is launching a vehicle which can be driven on land, or flown in the air.

    The Personal Air and Land Vehicle (PAL-V) can be configured as a gyrocopter, requiring a 165m (540 ft) runway to take-off, or as a three wheeled car.

    PAL-V chief executive Robert Dingemanse said that private individuals had expressed an interest in the machine, but he was also hoping that military and emergency services could find a use for it.

    Several test flights have been successfully conducted and the company is now looking for investors to take the PAL-V through the final development stage.
