Frank Thelen invests in flying cars

Frank Thelen’s investment firm e42 invests in Munich-based Lilium Aviation. While the amount is unknown, this figure was shared: the investment company received 15 per cent of the company’s shares. The company builds a flying car that starts and lands vertically. However, you’ll still need a sports pilot license.
