The Flying Car Evolution

Unread postby KlausNW » Wed Feb 14, 2018 5:36 pm

This is just one of the first of many videos to come. The average person on the street has little idea of Aviation's history. So many folks don't understand how much development has already taken place. The physics of flight will not change just because you want it too.

This concept is obviously under powered and a dozen pilots probably told them but, it cost too much for an engine that can do the job.:



There was a husband and wife on board both survived.

This video shows an experienced pilot flying a proven design.... from an airport.

There's practices and procedures that we in the Aviation community have developed and should be followed.

The flying car was properly registered but was under development and carrying a passenger.

Was that the wrong Flying Car link? I do remember the flying car, but think it is time to become an ultralight instructor!

My point..., the people are so hungry for a flying car they take crazy life threatening risks to invent something that already exists.

I meet so many non-pilots that tell me how easy it is to make a flying car. Most people believe that the passenger drone will be less expensive and land in the driveway. Even pilots forget basic physics that require an equal amount of air has to be forced downward to create lift.

Although you see an ultralight in the videos most non-pilots are seeing a flying car that will ease their daily commute to/from work.

There's unfortunately going to be more videos added here of air vehicle accidents. We know how to make 65 horsepower safely fly two people but most people just don't get it.

There was a time when 40 HP would fly two people.

They were all borrowed for the latest James Bond movie.

That's just it... there is no successful flying cars. Either it's a plane or a car.

The list of attempts go on and on. Even helicopters are best operated from designated landing areas. The down draft from a helicopter stirs up so much dust and noise they are better off using airports.

In College I flew and early Benson Gyrocopter. Probably the closest thing to a possible flying car that I ever saw. You could drive down the road with it (albeit illegally) with the rotor tied and then let it rip and pop into the sky.
