Finally Flying?

Though it’s not the first time we’ve had visions of flying cars dancing through our heads, it might be be the best time. And by best, we mean “closest to actually being real.”

A Czech company called AeroMobil has developed a vehicle that can hit 80 on the highway, and 125 in the air. You can fill it up at a regular gas station and because the wings fold up, you can also park in a regular parking spot. It doesn’t, however, get great gas mileage. We guess everything has a trade off…

So, is getting stuck in traffic a thing of the past? Vote in the poll and tell us what you think, then leave a comment and tell us if, this time, it’s real.

    I think that flying car is the next big because you don’t need spend to much money on the plane to go somewhere.

      I think ths is flying car the next big thing because you have the ability to transport easier than driving.Also because you will not need to pay as much money for the gas!

          I agree you will get around a lot faster, but imagine all of the people in the air with no sense of the people around them. There will more likely be a lot of accidents in the air which would cause a lot more damage. Since you will be going 125 mph!!!

      I believe that the flying car is the next big thing, because people can travel faster to places. Also they can get away from traffic jams and a less chance of getting in a crash.

        I don’t Think the flying car is the NBT because even though it will cost less money the go to like other states and stuff. What if the car runs out of gas when you are flying over the ocean and there is no gas place to stop at and get gas you will crash into the ocean and probably die

I say strap on the seat belts and helmets and lets fly!!!!!!!!!!!! :v

        We disagree, because the plane its self would cost a lot of money. People would have the have a license to fly the plan. Not just anyone can fly a plane.

    I don’t think the flying car is the Next big Thing because you would need a run way to get into the air, it would take up much space just with the wingspan alone, and like actual airplanes, you would think they need a specific gas to actually work, I say no way.

    I think the flying car is the next big thing because: even though it doesn’t have good gas mileage doesn’t mean you wont get o go where you want to go faster you get to other countries faster by flying a plane, Imagine a bridge across the Atlantic and the pacific oceans it would take you longer by driving to get to the other countries than by air which is the unusual route humanity: takes shorter for less

    I don’t think flying cars are the next big thing because it’s very impractical. Everyone would have to get new drivers licenses and re-learn how to drive.

    The cars would be too expensive for the general public to afford. Also there would be a need for some type of system to direct the flying cars. In addition, people would need to be educated to fly the car first. Fatal accidents and collisions when landing could be a problem.

    I don’t think that it’s real because something that doesn’t have great gas milage wouldn’t be useful. If I were the driver of it then I wouldn’t want to keep stoping.

    I think that flying cars will eventually be the next big thing, but they are too expensive and underdeveloped for most people. Also, for a flying car, it would cause much more problems to drivers, such as all new laws that would have to be invented, and new classes for everyone to take on how to operate one, since it would be more complicated than just a steering wheel. The cars would also make present day barriers ineffective, where you can fly over in a much smaller vehicle. This would also open up possibilities for terrorist attacks and assassinations.

    I feel as if people aren’t ready for flying cars. We would have to deal with drunk fliers and it would be incredibly difficult to maintain and afford. Plus we’d have more laws in the air that no one would follow anyway. Let’s stick to the ground!

    I don’t think flying cars are the next big thing. I am personally afraid of heights and would hate flying, but also it just seems like something that might cause accidents.
    I don’t think we want any more people to crash weather its a flying car or a regular car.

    I don’t think that this should be the next big thing because it would just be very awkward to look up in the sky and see a flying car. It could also be more dangerous if you crashed… you would have a 25% more chance of dying in a flying car crash than a regular driving on the ground car crash!

    You will probally end up spending more money on gas for it to fly than regular gas. You will also have to learn to fly witch may result in crashes and spending more money on it. It’s a no go!

    In my opiniob i think that the new flying car is a waste of money. Teens already are saving up on money for cars and what would happen if the new flying car came out and flying. everyone would be using them and teens would have to take flying lessons and would be spending money on something not worthwhile. they could be spending the money on collage or for an apartment or home and still have a decent car. i say to fly right past the new flying car. And also their aare already so many car crashes with people getting injured and if people start flying places unnecisarily there will be a gurentee on a crash and people injured or many families and people dieing.

    Flying cars are definitely not the Next Big Thing. Could you imagine the chaos this would cause if everyone wanted and owned one? There would be even more accidents, more crashes. If you ran out of gas and fell into the sea..? How could you possibly control this air traffic? It’s just a dream, not reality. You can’t have flying cars, because chaos would surely follow.

    Yeah I think it will work one because if there is too much traffic on the road then you can fly into the air and get past the traffic. And if there are a lot of people in the air but not on the road then you can land on the road and then continue to go to your destination. I mean seriously most people don’t actually think about how things can actually be used anymore.

    I don’t think it is the next big thing, not necessarily because the horrible gas mileage (there are plenty of cars with horrible gas mileage), but because of the fact that it flies. With no traffic lights in the air, there would be a greater risk of crashing, and you could even hit someone on the ground below. It would be too dangerous.

    I think it will be the next big thing because my dad always told me he had a dream of owning his own flying car. So he still wants it today. Even though it might take awhile until people can drive them because they would have to put up signs, stop lights, and cops would need flying cop cars along with the firefighters and they would need ambulances.

    I think it is cool you can fill it up in a regular gas station and park it, but what of the danger? What if you are flying over a Rocky Mountain to high up in the sky and you run out of gas? If you try to Land there will be no place to land a plane in the mountains if you are making an emergency landing! I think it is cool though!

    For everyone to have flying cars we would need to consider that then we would need to adjust drivers licenses to simultaneously be pilot licenses, and it would be much more difficult to resolve issues such as stolen vehicles or possessions if the getaway car, or stolen vehicle could fly. So no, I do not believe this is a good idea.
