The future of flying cars is closer than you think
The FAA recently approved the Transition flying plane-car. The Transition drives like a car, uses normal high-octane gasoline and get up to 30 MPG. It is front-wheel-drive and even comes with airbags. Not only is it able to unfold its wings and soar into the sky, but it only needs a one-third of a mile strip for a runway. If bad weather hits, all the pilot needs to do is land and drive home.
