Opener Blackfly Personal Electric Aircraft Will Sell For The Price Of An SUV

Klein Vision Flying Car Makes First-ever Inter-city Flight

So far, the so-called “flying cars” are mostly glorified, oversized drones and hardly can be called “flying cars”. I mean. When we mention flying cars, we expect something out of Luc Besson’s The Fifth Element (1997, Buena Vista International), or at least something like Matt Trakker’s Thunderhawk from the cartoon series, M.A.S.K.

Malaysia’s “Flying Car” Concept Looks Like It Had Cheap Fans Stuck On It

Malaysia is not particularly a pro when it comes to making cars. To put it bluntly, their National car isn’t the sharpest tools in the tool shed. But how bad it is? Well, lets just say that former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson had no good words for them and even caused a furore by …

Goodyear Dreams Of The Boldest Flying Car Concept Yet With Aero Tires

To be perfectly, we are kind of disappointed with the progress of flying cars. It seems like flying cars that so many companies claimed to be making are nothing more than an aircraft.

Mendiola is the founding member of …

Opener Unveiled BlackFly Flying Car, But It Really Is An Ultralight Aircraft

According to Wikipedia, a flying car is “a type of personal air vehicle or ‘roadable’ aircraft that provides door-to-door transportation by both ground and air.” So, what really is a flying car? My definition would be a car-like vehicle that flies. Whether or not it is roadable is non-consequential (think Fifth Element). But I guess …

DeLorean ‘Flying Car’ Is Not The DeLorean You Have Come To Expect

DeLorean did not promised us flying cars, but Back to the Future II sure planted that idea into our head. Since then, companies and individuals have not stop trying to make car fly, which now apparently includes the DeLorean. Wait, what? A flying DeLorean? A very interesting prospect that piqued a BTTF fan like me. …

World’s First Commercial Flying Car Is Ready, Can Be Yours For $599K

So, ladies and gentlemen, we give you the world’s first …
