“The creation of a vehicle that will serve both as a motor vehicle and as an aircraft just seems to be an idea that won’t go away. It has been 100 years since the advent of the first powered flight. Although there have been many attempts, to this point in time no one has created a flying car/roadable aircraft design that has filled the skies with dual-purpose vehicles. Is it possible to fulfill this dream?
The major consideration probably is the fact that the automobile and the airplane, as we now know them, are incompatible in many ways. This overview is an attempt to examine and define the challenges to be faced in overcoming these problems. Some of them seem insurmountable, but we believe creativity and persistence can be made to prevail.”
