Flying Cars To Arrive This Summer

Flying Cars To Arrive This Summer

A California-based startup named Jetpack Aviation (JPA) has plans to unveil the world’s first flying car this summer. Before you get too excited, think of it less as a car that can fly and more as an aircraft that can drive. The vehicle will have six electric engines and is designed to fit inside the average 1 car garage. It is not designed to fly at commercial heights though. The vehicle will only reach an altitude of about 6-8 feet and travel at around 90 mph. This is a new paradigm for travel so its not clear when or if it will catch on. The technology is certainly impressive though.
