For safety purpose, the hybrid electric flying car gets an ejection parachute as well as airbags enabled cockpit. Further, the hybrid flying car uses Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) system which provides safety for the passengers through redundancy. This means there are multiple propellers and motors on the aircraft and if one or more motors or propellers fail, the other working motors and propellers can safely land the aircraft.

Vinata Aeromobility has been able to achieve its flying car dreams thanks to the seed funding provided by angel investor Mohan Paroha - a veteran management, IT and real estate businessman based in India and Europe.
