Flying Car Summary

Although the flying car looks more like a plane than a car, we love the possibilities that the flying car has to offer. It is good to know that there are companies working on the concept of creating flying cars. The concept may look very primitive at this stage and the cars look more like planes than cars but it might be a step into the right direction of creating beautiful cars that can fly! At this stage creating a plane and car at the same time that looks beautiful may be hampered by Aviation Laws. I haven't researched it but I think the problem lies with all the rules these flying cars have to adhere by!

But let's see what happens with this Flying Car, I suspect it is going to lead to great things!
