  • The future was 19 years ago.

    If you don’t want to use a flying car, Flying motorcycle, Jet pack, Personal helicopter or human load capacity drone— which fall into the Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) category— then don’t. People that want to use these machines should be able too. Especially in urban environments as a daily option to commute people should absolutely be able to hail a ride share Air taxi or fly their own PAV. The last big personal transportation evolution was from horse and carriages to horseless carriages. There was much trepidation and fear at that time as well. It took 2-3 generations for cars to become mainstream. It will be the same for PAV’s. If you’re not for it— even if you try standing in the way we will fly over your head and leave squawking like a dinosaur in the Old Millennium.

  • There's no reason it shouldn't

    Flying cars are a great idea because of a HUGE number of reasons, Including:
    1. Faster travel
    2. Less clogging up of ground based traffic
    3. Reduced sound pollution near the ground
    4. Air impurities released from these air vehicles do not settle near the ground and create smog (conversely, Breathing difficulties)
    5. Land based geographical boundaries between two locations can be easily ignored
    6. No need to construct supporting infrastructure like highways, Bridges or tunnels (except airports and refueling stations, Of course)

    HOWEVER, I believe this concept will be viable only when. . .
    1. Air transport becomes cheaper
    2. Air transport becomes safer (this can be achieved by making the car driverless or through thorough training of pilots)
    3. A proper air traffic management system is established
    4. Infrastructure and technology developed to overcome the threat of crashes

  • We need flying cars

    Of course we need flying cars Of course we need flying car. Now traffic is increasing and its getting really hard to go to places on time. The flying car fits into any standard parking space, Uses regular gasoline, And can be used in road traffic just like any other car and as a plane it can use any airport in the world, But can also take off and land using any grass strip or paved surface just a few hundred meters long. I believe that this is the best invention for improving transportation since for invented cars.

  • Ground-based vehicle traffic will become impossible.

    Population controls fail. History proves it. Our currently increasing global population proves that population controls fail. Large cities have heavily congested roads later and later into the night. Building more roads destroys more of the environment. Widening roads in cities displaces more residents. This adds another factor to increasing housing costs. More demand for less housing. Roads can not be constructed fast enough to handle the rate of new drivers buying their own cars. Public transit lines (bus, light-rail, subway) can not handle the rates of population growth. Thankfully, there are eight companies with plans to begin sales of flying cars by 2020. Regardless of whether people may or may not understand how desperately the flying car is needed, the flying car is coming soon. Change is coming soon.

  • Does the world need flying cars?

    We already have enough congestion, NOISE and other pollution.
    I can just imagine cigar and cigarette butts and other trash raining from the sky from inconsiderate pilots?
    How and Who will enforce air traffic at that level of use if it were to become somewhat mainstream. Too many negative variables.

  • Worst of Both Worlds

    No one wants a lousy airplane, Nor a lousy car, And the requirements for the two devices are so different that any practically buildable flying car is both an inferior airplane and an inferior automobile at the same time. Really, Why bother? It solves a problem that no one actually has.

  • At one time I thought so but...

    We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. My argument is in my article here http://www.paulyscifi.com/573-2/

    I am hopeful for the world in general but there has to be a way to make it more safe before we take the plunge. If there are ideas implemented to do so then my mind can be changed.

  • It won't be

    There's life of the way we were back then but today the eastern united state is heavily populated and the middle and western part are less populated when the country's about to limit the population growth. So that project for the flying car will fail and will stay using on ground car.

  • That's kind of slander!

    However will the cars go in the air so it won't do. So as you know, some countries are limiting the population growth now. And it wasn't safe for flying cars to drive through the rain even they will crash into the mountains and buildings. Although that we think driving on ground is better.

  • No it shouldn't

    We think that driving a flying car is difficault and it can crash into a building but we would have a road that was ahundernd feet off the ground, that's will be a bridge that will go on for half a mile over the land. So then there isn't going to be a flyng car's but just the one on the gound and the new high way in the air that was look's like a bridge.

  • No we won't need flying cars

    WE won't need flying cars cause it is very ridiculous for now on we have to drive on land and we do need gas so let's thin of it. There's no way we can drive that thing in the air. But today we drive, just on land.. .. ... .

  • No I think not.

    Do you know about it? So for the street today in the late 2000's was perfect. But everything was great to be natural when we have a cars that drive on land so it was easier than in air so we don't have to learn how to drive again. And we still need helicopter and private plane.

  • No it dosen't

    It doesn't because it was difficult and not possible, and there will be no roads, and gas station. We think it was easy if we go by land and we still need plains so a few more farm, or a sub divide are with land that was ten acres each can have it's own private runway and higher but it can cost a lot of money including the storage fuel tank. But for now on we can go by land and air.

  • It won't be neccisarly

    Do you think we need flying cars no we don't. Just because we drive of ground is easy. But flying? Not so easy, and it would crash into a building. So how can we convert our old cars that was on aground into a flying cars? No way we don't need them so I think driving on the ground is fine.
