M400 Skycar by Moller design

Moller International is finally taking pre-orders of the M400 Skycar. The dream flying machine is one of its kind personal vertical take off and landing (VTOL) vehicle that can cruise at a maximum speed of 375 MPH at 13,200 ft. Moller is waiting for FAAs approval before actually allowing you to kiss the sky literally leaving the maddening traffic and red lights behind forever. The amount deposited is refundable in case FAA doesn’t approve it for sale or any other technical problems during test flights before 2008.

Other awesome technical specifications of the M400 Skycar read that it runs on ethanol and achieves up to 20 miles per gallon carrying four passengers at the maximum. The 2,400 lbs vehicle equips a 1,200 HP engine and emergency parachutes. According to Fahad, the estimated price of the Skycar is more than $500,000.

This is a decades-long pipe dream by a fellow who shows vastly more imagination and disposable income than technical capability. This latest incarnation features eight engines (!!!), and despite the redundancy I would still be afraid to fly it A: without a ballistic parachute, B: over an urban area, or C: without pilot training and a registered flight plan. This is not to say that 'flying cars' are destined to remain forever in the realm of science fiction, but Moller is not the right man for the job.

You can't fly it without a pilots license anyways. You have restricted airspace over urban areas like a regular airplane. It's like flying a personal jet except you can land it on a roof.
