    Soon I guess!!

    Won't be cheap and the traffic jam takeoffs will be a nightmare!

    Dude, automobile collisions are a leading cause of death as it is, and we only operate in 2 dimensions. Can you imagine if we added the third?

    Road rage incidents would become dogfights...

    As I can imagine one has to have PPL to fly on a 'car' so I don't believe flying cars will be as popular as ordinary landmobile cars and trucks.

    There’s supply chain issues, we can’t get enough help, ships can’t get offloaded, COVID, COVID, COVID … blah, blah…

    You’re not getting your flying car.

    Not a new idea... Boeing air museums got one of the ones from the 50s. Can you imagine all the traffic above your head. You’d never see the sky again, or the mountains for that matter.

    That's really cool in person, isn't it? you look at it and think "there is NO WAY I'm going to get into that thing and fly it!!"

    I would totally not be getting into it and flying. It looks so much like a VW bug and a ride at cheap carnival had a baby. lol. I think I would rather ride in a j3 cub...
