    Default Multi-Passenger Fuel-Electric Air Car



    A team of engineers headed by aircraft engineers Michael Moshier and Robert Bulaga is looking forward to building a multi-passenger, fuel-electric hybrid air vehicle.

    The car will be the second and improved model of Vertical Take-Off-and-Landing (VTOL) single passenger vehicle, which the team named SoloTrek XFV.

    The latest development will be based on the same duct-fan technology that the engineers used in SoloTrek. Currently the team is searching for someone to fund their project.

    The previous $5-million project was funded by DARPA. The SoloTrek air vehicle was highly appreciated by aircraft enthusiasts. It also received the Invention of the Year award from Popular Science.

    The latest project is expected to be very helpful to the police, during recue operations and for medical aids, where it could help people during different natural disasters.

    In addition, Moshier says that their hybrid air vehicle could be widely used for everyday commutation purposes in poor countries, where infrastructure is a very low level. People in developed countries could use the vehicle to escape car-stuffed megapolises.

    unlikely..
    the handling is horrible, it can't be used practically.

    @Deadstring67: that design is not a car bro, but a 2 passenger helicopter.. obvious kaayo sa tail bro.. we cant call it a car if ing-ana ang iyang design.

    European Union Invests $6.2 Million in Flying Cars



    The European Union decided to invest $6.2 million into the research and development of a new mean of transportation called Personal Aerial Vehicles (or simply PAV).



    The new project is entitled "myCopter" and according to authorities the vehicle will be able to solve numerous issues linked with non-commercial air-travel.

    The PAVs will be able to fly below the altitude of commercial airlines so they would not interrupt flight paths.

    However, there are still some problems in the project that need to be solved. These refer to the way of coordinating ground control, security legislation, traffic laws and some other legal and political issues.

    One of the solutions that EU proposes refers to the creation of "no fly zones". Thus the PAVs will be equipped with special software that will ensure that the driver does not cross these zones. This means that the automatic system onboard these vehicles will simply not permit the direction of the vehicle towards the "no fly zones".

    In addition, the project aims at considerably reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the fact that the flights are planned to be direct and uninterrupted, trips will take less time and thus be more effective.

    According to MyCopter researchers, the time required for a trip using a PAV will be last not longer than 62 miles in length. Besides, because inside there's room for only 2 passengers, in the future these vehicles could be equipped with electric motors.
