Cartivator is organized by a group of young volunteers who work in the automotive and aviation industries as well as a startup company. Our mission is “Connecting dreams to the next generation through mobility”. Our team consists of people with diverse professional backgrounds and are working hard every weekend towards developing the flying car. We aim to build a prototype, establish theory of flight control, as well as form alliances with major corporations to make mass production of the flying car a reality.




Our engineering team is based at an old elementary school in Aichi Prefecture. The City of Toyota offered us to utilise the closed school premises for our activities. We moved in our tools and computers; and conduct experiments in the schoolyard. Our business team is based in Tokyo and have monthly Skype meetings with the engineering team to share each other’s current status.



The origin of CARTIVATOR comes from idea that we would like to be a CULTIVATOR who is producing excited experiences with a car (CAR). Instead of using “i”, we use “!” for Cartivator to express our exciting experience. The logo mark with a wing on a streamlined body stands for the image that seems to fly away at any moment.
