Recently the Terrafugia Transition has brought these wild flights of fancy closer to reality. It's called the Aeromobil and it could be coming to skies near you soon.
It is a very interesting design, speaking from a woman perspective. Twin verticals, angle elevators, engine recharges the batteries and all seem pretty cool. Wish someone would make one that is mass producible and affordable because I would really like to fly one someday.
Come on! I want my flying car. Lol
