Fortunately,

“An aircraft that can replace the automobile is still an object of fantasy and speculation. Such a flying car would have to be very easy to fly safely and be able to operate from driveways and parking lots with little or no special preparation.” (Source: Wikipedia, emphasis added.)

The announcement comes two days after a plane carrying New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle above the East River slammed into a skyscraper.” Source: CBS/AP, October 13, 2006

This post is dedicated to the memory of New York Yankees baseball pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor Tyler Stanger. May we learn the lessons and remember.

    It seems that some flying car dreamers want to start with flying urban rescue vehicles:

    “His initial fantasy was a flying sports car. But because of all the regulatory issues that would have to be resolved before masses of commuters could start whooshing through the sky, he tucked that dream aside to develop something that could hit the market earlier.”

    Hence, “Future rescue vehicle — the flying car” – CNN.com

    If these things ever evolve into flying cars for the “masses of commuters… whooshing through the sky”, there would be even more work for the flying rescue vehicles, of course.
