Mbetsa revealed his project exclusively to reporters as he explained his intentions of using his potentially influential invention as a taxi in the Nairobi CBD.
In exclusive photos, a worker can be seen working on his prototype which has taken a shape of a small helicopter.
Mbetsa explained that the project, which cost him about KSh 8 million had the potential of changing the transport sector in the country.
For one thing, the flying car does not run on fuel as is the case with other automobiles.
Instead, a specially designed battery is charged for four hours and its power is able to facilitate a flight for 20 minutes if the optimum weight limit inside the car is maintained.
Fully equipped with propellers and wheels, the flying car is a fairly convenient size of a normal car – an indication it may not be a major hindrance to other users in the city.

He is no stranger to innovation and his lucrative mind had started crafting innovative ideas from as far back as 2009.
Aged 19, Mbetsa stunned the world when he invented an anti-theft car system that enabled drivers to lock their cars using their phones.
In his latest project, however, he is targeting an even bigger fish as he seeks to attempt to launch the first successful flying car in Kenya.
