SkyDrive Inc. was established by the members of CARTIVATOR, a group of aircraft, drones, and automotive engineers. In December 2018, the first Japanese outdoor flight test of a flying car (unmanned) was conducted with regular testing throughout 2019.
Japan's largest flying car flight test field (as of September 2019) was opened in Toyota City in June 2019 as part of a “partnership agreement of flying car development for the creation of new industries” with the cooperation of Aichi Prefecture and Toyota City. Development for this year’s manned flight test launch is underway, as well as preparation for the flight demonstration in summer of 2020 and finally sales release in 2023.
