Wheee! Look, ma, I can fly!

A former Navy pilot is about to test the prototype for a personal flying machine. How cool is that! I would love to have one of these things so that I could fly with a real bird’s-eye view of neat places like the Palisades cliffs & New York Harbor… of course, it would be a blast buzzing all the cars stuck on the GW bridge at rush hour, too. :stuck_out_tongue:

Wonder what you could do to avoid a mid-air collision with a Canada goose at 80 mph, though.

Ooh. Where’s the waiting list? :smiley:

Seriously, this would be fun. Learning how to fly it might scare you to death, tho.

That thing looks like a gas! I would love to try it out. I just don’t think the average citizen will get the opportunity to own one. I wonder what the FAA stance on personal flight will be. How long before you’ll need a “flight” endorsement on your license? Will the police want to outlaw these: John Doe robs bank and escapes using a low level flight pattern at 80 mph. Maybe it’s big brother paranoia, but don’t see the government letting this go public without a fight.

I concur SN. I doubt these will be available anytime soon. But, when they do…I’m so there!


Nahh…I want a Moller Skycar.
