Boeing flying car prototype completes first test flight

A Boeing photo shows a prototype "flying car"—part of a project aimed at "on-demand autonomous air transportation" by the US aviation giant, one of several projects being developed worldwide

Boeing said Wednesday its prototype "flying car"—part of a project aimed at "on-demand autonomous air transportation"—has completed its first successful test flight.

 
The electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft said the test was carried out Tuesday outside the US capital Washington, the company said in a statement.

The way many people "drive" today, gives me great pause at having them "flying"...
Throwing our allegiances to political parties in the long run gave away our liberty.

Such a flying "car" has no need of the airport.

Nor is it going to be flying at altitudes used by airlines.
