In this study, the design of the electric powered VTOL Flying car was made in the CAD program, and the longitudinal, vertical and lateral flight dynamics were examined and aerodynamic analysis was made. In the design, the power and propulsion systems of the flying car, avionic systems, security systems, magnetic sensors, navigation landing and take-off methods, requirement verification methods, flight performance values were determined. Our design work for flying cars, which will soon start real-time flights, will guide the people and institutions that will design and produce in this field. A practical flying car should be able to operate safely and environmentally both in public spaces and in the air. For widespread adoption, it must be able to fly without a qualified pilot as we know it as a controller, and must have appropriate purchase and operating costs. Being a qualified car driver and having a pilot license, which certification processes are extremely difficult, is an important obstacle to the adoption and widespread process of the flying car concept. The certification processes of many different countries have been examined for the flying car we will design. Examination of these processes has been guiding in the creation of detailed data on many issues, and in this context, care has been taken to meet the requested competencies on a common ground. In order to overcome these procedures, a VTOL platform with high autonomy has been designed thanks to its subsystems as well as a stable flight dynamics.
