Are Flying Cars On Their Way?

From the streets to the skies?

The idea of flying cars has been around for a long time, but no one has been successful in creating a practical flying car. But there is hope.

A Dutch company has created a half-car, half-plane hybrid that resembles more of a helicopter than a plane. It’s been in development since 2008 and is halfway between a tricycle and a gyrocopter and get this…it transforms. The initial design is aimed at emergency services, but if this takes off ( pun intended ) then it could surely reach a wider audience. One has to wonder what it would cost to purchase this thing and not to mention fuel costs.

Here’s a video of the PAL-V in action
