The Halo Jet looks very beautiful and it has high reliability and efficiency to withstand. This Halo Jet will reduce the traffic in the road.This car will split some parts into the series of different chassis to change the car to air jet.
The Halo Interceptor concept is that it can be morphed into an airplane, helicopter or motorboat.This concept is mainly used to increase the advanced technology of automobiles.
With the help of this car one can attain whatever form they need by just making some slight modification depending on the circumstances.
Halo Interceptor is a versatile vehicle, one car that can couple with several vehicles.The main purpose is to change a normal car into boats, planes or helicopters.This car attracts all youngsters and children’s.
The Halo Interceptor is a concept vehicular hub, which begins as a sports car. With attachments, the Halo can be converted to a helicopter, a catamaran speedboat, or a jet aircraft. Conceivably a submarine attachment could be designed as easily as the cat speedboat or jet flyer.
This unit handles a flight-test, their work includes for providing security for the take-off shafts.
The Halo Intersceptor, as its creator calls, has three interchangeable connecting housings, allowing for different configurations.The car is a futuristic grey-ish wight with black panel lines . The front of the concept has a very pointed shape, to minimize air resistance, with a blunt nose that is reminiscent of the Space Shuttle.
The lights have a teardrop shape that flows to the wheel arch. As for the wheels themselves, there are none to speak off as far as we can see. The back of the car shows a striking resemblance to the Bugatti Veyron, with the same four stop lights and engine cover.
Pauley’s vision of a flying car has thick, swept back delta wings and single vertical stabilizer. The boat version seems to have a split hull at the front. The boat mixes the car’s white and black color scheme with a wood texture on the deck
A British engineer has designed a concept car capable of transforming itself into an airplane, helicopter or motorboat.
Dubbed the Halo Interceptor, the futuristic vehicle was created by Philip Pauley, who previously devised a sophisticated modular system that allows trees to be planted virtually anywhere, including on skyscraper roofs and cruise liners.
The Halo Interceptor has already won numerous accolades, and was touted as being “sexy enough on its own just being a car” by 100 Cute, while Top Speed described the Halo as a vehicle “straight out of a sci-fi movie.”
However, according to Pauley, the Interceptor should not be thought of as a flying car, but rather a “road legal airplane, helicopter and motor cruiser.”
“[It] comprises a car component – the ‘Interceptor’ – and three connecting housings, Halo 120°, Halo 46° and Halo 22°,”
The concept of Halo Intersceptor, also known as Halo Interceptor was actually a concept created by Phil ‘p’auley, a British Engineer but there has been a great confusion over the spelling of the concept as well as the author. Though ‘Halo Intersceptor’ is the right one, Google is producing search results for both.
Most of the search results show results with the incorrect spelling and I suppose it is not the people but the search engine is confusing people with their instant guessing of spelling. The most funny thing is that the correct spelling “Halo Intersceptor’ is highlighted in red stating as incorrect. The man behind this concept is Phil Pauley but so many websites misspelt it as Philip Pauley.

Halo interceptor must have been influenced from flying cars but the former has an additional feature of “Swimming’ also. The concept of flying cars came into limelight in the beginning of 20th century. There were nearly 80 patents on file at the United States Patent and Trademark office for various kinds of flying cars. But among them a few got recognized, the first was ‘Curtiss Autoplane’ introduced in 1917 by Glenn Curtiss who could also be called the father of the flying car. His aluminium ‘Autoplane’ sported three wings that spanned 40 feet (12.2 meters). The car’s motor drove a four-bladed propeller at the rear of the car. The Autoplane never truly flew, but it did manage a few short hops. The second notable was ‘Arrowbile’ developed by Waldo Waterman in 1937 which was a hybrid Studebaker-aircraft. It also had a propeller attached to the rear of the vehicle which was similar like ‘Autoplane’. The three-wheeled car was powered by a typical 100-horsepower Studebaker engine. The wings detached for storage. A lack of funding killed the project. Another distinguished concept was ‘Airphibian’ by Robert Fulton in 1946. His concept had a slight difference, instead of adapting a car for flying, Fulton adapted a plane for the road. The wings and tail section of the plane could be removed to accommodate road travel, and the propeller could be stored inside the plane’s fuselage. It took only five minutes to convert the plane into a car.
The Airphibian was the first flying car to be certified by the Civil Aeronautics Administration, the predecessor of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It had a 150-horsepower, six-cylinder engine and could fly 120 miles per hour and drive at 50 mph. Despite his success, Fulton couldn’t find a reliable financial backer for the Airphibian. Another innovative concept was ‘ConvAircar’ which was debuted in 1947 and offered one hour of flight and a gas mileage of 45 miles (72 klm) per gallon. But unfortunately it was crashed on its third flight. ‘Avrocar’ was the result of the joint effort between Canadian and British military and became the first flying car designed for military use. The flying-saucer-like vehicle was a lightweight air carrier that would move troops to the battlefield.. Moulton Taylor credits to have developed the most well-known and most successful flying car ‘Aerocar’ to date. It was designed to drive , fly and then again drive without interruption. Taylor covered his car with a fiberglass shell. A 10-foot-long (3-meter) drive shaft connected the engine to a pusher propeller. It cruised at 120 mph (193 kph) in the air and was the second and last roadable aircraft to receive FAA approval. Ford Motor planned to market the vehicle but due to oil crisis, it was dashed.
Though this was the fate of pioneers, the innovation paved way for successful production of flying cars. According to Terrafugia, the flying car has generated more than 70 preorders despite the huge price of $ 200,000 in 2009. Now there are quite many flying cars in the market. The same way the Halo Interceptor concept of ‘all in one’ – a car, a boat, and a plane will come into reality soon with the advancements in technology and the pressure from the increasingly demanding world.
Wait and see to welcome this innovative concept!!!
