That looks cool, but until someone develops a practical VTOL, there are still no flying cars.

If you have to drive to the airport and fold out the wings, it is no longer a car. They have been doing that since before I was born.

Good point. So this KleinVision AirCar is not really a flying car. It's a rolling airplane.

I actually saw one of those for sale at Barrett-Jackson many years ago.

Flying cars are such a bad idea for so many reasons.

Any personal transportation that avoids street congestion and instant death will be quickly adopted by everyone which places you back to congestion.

Also imagine drunk drivers taking to the air.
