Is there a Flying Car in your Future?

Flying to work

Experimental Flying Car

Flying to work is not a new concept.  As you know, cars and planes were invented in the same general time frame, and the melding of the two concepts was envisioned shortly thereafter. It seems that in just about every decade since then, someone has produced a design for a flying car.

In the 1960’s I was young man, with a brand new pilot’s license. Back then there was a flying car that was capturing the imagination of the country.  Thanks to my flight instructor, I was placed high on a list to fly it, but I never did.  A week before it was my turn,  it crashed and killed the inventor.  That was a sad event, but it was lucky for me.  That machine had some design flaws.  Had I taken my turn at the controls, it could have been me that crashed.  That crash proved that there are many challenges to produce a truly safe flying car, and it is why we had to wait several decades to see it finally become a reality.  Happily for many people alive today, the technology has changed. The advent of new technology, computers and strong, but light weight construction materials  has created an environment quite conducive to creating a flying car.

The microprocessor (the computer chip), The Global Positioning System, (GPS,) and light weight, space age materials for the body, have all come together to create the reality of a flying car.  With this new technology the average person finally has a realistic chance of flying to work.  Of course, one must have the money to buy one of these fantastic machines.  The current versions are expensive, but In time the technology will mature, and the price will come down, but the concept is here, and ready for take-off, if you’ll pardon the pun.

In my view, the most successful entry will incorporate the best aspects of drone technology, and traditional aircraft design.  Computers will be used to assist the pilot with flight stability, and navigation. This will allow a buyer to achieve competent flight status in a relatively short period of time.

In the near term, the Federal Aviation Administration is poised to certify more than one of the new breed of flying cars. Once all the obstacles are overcome, the flying car will revolutionize the way we travel. Soon we will look up and see cars mixed in with airplanes, and maybe politicians will be promising a chicken in every pot, and a flying car in every garage.
