The market availability of flying cars be in close future

The topic is about flying cars availability in near future. With so many years passed with speculations about launch of a viable flying car model, actual vehicle that can fly besides being roadable is far from reality. Although mobile giants have worked on this, there are entrepreneur issues along with administrative issues preventing flying cars from becoming a reality.

That is going to be one monster of a thing to tackle!

In reply to: The market availability of flying cars be in close future

Drones (quadcopters, etc..) are already causing problems in the public air space, I can't imagine the politics, the rules, and regulations around flying cars even if we have these flying cars already.

Technology for flying cars isn't the big challenge, it's the rules and regulation that will be the roadblock. I don't think the George Jetsons will become a reality in my life time! Sad

Self-Driving Cars Are Less Flashy But More Practical

In reply to: The market availability of flying cars be in close future

I don't think we'll be seeing flying cars in our lifetime, not because of a lack of technology but more because of a lack of necessity. The flying car has been romanticized so much by science fiction but I truly believe the self-driving cars described in this article on future cars offer a much more exciting and useful development in automotive technology. I feel like the main selling point of a flying car (besides "woah! Flying car!") is that it would reduce traffic. Self-driving cars, if used as the primary means of transportation in metropolitan areas, would cut down traffic while reducing traffic-related injuries/fatalities and potentially saving motorists money on insurance fees, parking, etc. While flying cars would reduce traffic, they could very well lead to an increase in injury/fatality and probably cost quite a bit to maintain.

I don't think the presence of flying cars will do any good to the traffic conditions that we are facing right now. If everyone is driving a flying car, then there will still be a congestion, but in the skies. Thus, there is no escaping from traffic jams.
