The traffic they could soon be controlling might include some of the following, some of which are like a car, some The Pal V-One drives like a souped-up Sinclair C5 on the road, but then laboriously unfurls cumbersome helicopter rotors and yet still needs a runway to take off.
But it, too, needs a runway, so it can either be used as a car, or as a plane. Great if you live in the outback; otherwise, might as well get a car, and a plane. Toyota is working on a fully electric, VTOL, computer-controlled flying car. Easy to imagine the police aerially harassing us with one of these within a decade. Two examples share first prize: Faster than a helicopter, quieter than a Harrier jump jet However, it is still nowhere near general availability.
Also, Terrafugia will be pricing Transition between and hundred US dollars. Transition, made by Terrafugia, is a subsidiary of the Chinese-owned Geely Automotive group. Its test prototypes have racked up hundreds of hours of flight time already.

This may not seem very prepossessing for an aircraft engine. However, the creators appear confident that Transition can make it airport-to-airport, at least. The company also asserts that the vehicle is well-positioned to replace small light aircraft for domestic flights. A test flight for an earlier Transition test model. What happens when Transition touches the ground again?

Given that it looks much like a small plane than a car, how can it fit into the average lane on the road? The car has previously been photographed on-road in this conformation. Reports have also claimed that it will propel itself using a hybrid electric engine, while on the ground.
All this sounds very promising, especially for those who have been looking forward to owning their own flying cars since the release of the movie, Back to the Future! Terrafugia notes that the switch between flight and road modes takes as little as a minute.
