Fox Business News announced that the world’s first flying car is getting close to its debut!
If a two seat, aircraft that has the capability of switching from can switch between driving and flying modes in less than one minute is up your alley, Terrafugia is taking orders for pre-sales beginning this month. The actual cost of the “flying” car has yet to be announced, however the roadable aircraft will be available for delivery in 2019!
If you are anything like me, you most likely grew up on a steady diet of the Jetson’s and may have thought to yourself “I can’t wait to have a flying car.” However, are you really prepared for what this may mean?
How exactly would a flying car even work? We can all imagine ourselves behind the wheel of a traditional vehicle, even with traffic jams and the reality of auto incidents that may occur. But really, sitting behind the wheel of a completely unmanned flying car? What about power lines? Mechanical failure? After all, who wants to parachute through space or better yet, go plummeting to the ground when a mechanical issue arises.
Consider all the “buzzing” around above your homes while you try to sleep at night.
Let’s assume the manufacturers have all of these concerns worked out. What about price? Traditional automobiles are already averaging in the 10’s of thousands of dollars. Are you willing to pay a few hundred thousand dollars to fly to work after dropping your kids off at school or a simple night out on the town? Imagine all the looks you will get when your flying car lands at football practice or to drop off your kiddo at a school dance. We still get a bit of hype over the size of our SUV’s.
What are your thoughts on the flying car? We’d love to hear from you.
