The idea of the flying cars is not new. Science fiction writers and film makers have been toying with this idea for decades. Flying vehicles are the part and parcel of every futuristic movie (Back to the Future, Star Wars, Blade Runner, The Fifth Element).
Companies like Joby aviation, lilium, kitty hawk, pal-v, Skydive, Terrafugia and many others are manufacturing flying cars, getting services from Toyota, Uber, Boeing, drone fund, Energy and environment investment inc etc.
Around 250 flying car company makers are predicting that in 2020s, many ambulances, police, fire and military vehicles based on multirotor technology will be available. Car makers are giving their own designs that where and how their cars will be park. This will be particularly true in more rural areas or areas with limited roads.
There are some hurdles towards making flying cars a reality. These include licensing requirements to fly passengers commercially, safety standards, maintenance, control, and step-by-step adoption policies for safeguarding against cybercrimes. While some concepts don’t require a licensed pilot and others don’t need a pilot at all – many passengers may feel uneasy about them.
In just a century, every 7th person in the world has his own car, including some of the most isolated or poorest communities in the world.
Can you guess that what the world will look like in 22nd century?
