Personal Air Vehicles could be on the way and given that cities like LA are going to grind to a halt due to traffic congestion it could be pretty soon. Lots of companies working on designs. Some of the UFOs people have been seeing for the past decade or so could be LTA airships under development for passenger transportation. The park and ride scenario is what I think could work until the FAA gets off their a$$ and upgrades their ATC infrastructure (scheduled for 2025!?).

Once we get rid of all the cars what are we going to do with all that concrete? Could build houses on top of freeways I guess.

If you had a PAV what would you do first? Fly over your friends house and drop water balloons?

I would show up to parties with it, have someone fly me there and rappel down onto the front lawn.

Don't the airlines and the private plane owners have enough conflicts with each other?
Now we will have flying cars added to the air lanes. Where are the air controllers coming
from? Who is going to come up with a laser beamed projected stop sign?
Oh crap,honey, you forgot to top off the tank. George will you please hold onto the dog while
I bank this puppy for a better view.
If you want thrills, why not strap some helium filled balloons to a lawn chair with a small
motor attached to your back and DIY :roll:

For a number of reasons.
