We’ve had both cars and planes for a more than a century already, so what’s taking the flying car so long? It’s mostly been a question of feasibility: Personal flying vehicles must be safe, practical, affordable, fuel efficient and easy to operate for a non-pilot. So far, none of the projects have met all these criteria. But revolutionary technology is bringing us closer to a flying car-reality every day, and with at least 12 companies working on prototypes in the US alone, some personal flying vehicles are but a couple years away from commercial production.
