Talking about flying cars is nothing new but making it really happen is a different story. Many earlier attempts to do so have failed but with new regulations and perspectives on personal flying Dutch amateur pilot John Bakker seems to make a good chance with the Personal Air and Land Vehicle
"The PAL-V ONE is a hybrid of a car a motorbike and a gyrocopter: a personal air and land vehicle. A solution to increasing congestion in our cities, highways and skyways. On the ground, the slim line, aerodynamic 3-wheel vehicle is as comfortable as a luxury car but has the agility of a motorbike, thanks to its patented cutting-edge 'tilting' system. The single rotor and propeller are folded away until the PAL-V ONE is ready to fly."
The PAL-V Europe company is currently raising the capital to get the first flying car on the road, or better in the sky within four years time. For us locals, this might be the end of ghost ship stories with John Bakker as the new Flying Dutchman
