Flying Cars and Roadable Aircraft

The creation of a vehicle that will serve both as a motor vehicle and as an aircraft just seems to be an idea that won't go away. It has been over 100 years since the advent of the first powered flight. Although there have been many attempts, to this point in time no one has created a flying car design that has filled the skies with dual-purpose vehicles. Is it possible to fulfill this dream?

The major consideration probably is the fact that the automobile and the airplane, as we now know them, are incompatible in many ways. This overview is an attempt to examine and define the challenges to be faced in overcoming these problems. The first challenge is to establish a satisfactory weight for the machine.

Weight of the Machine

The airplane must be as light as possible. The automobile may be as heavy as you like, and most of the time, the heavier it is, the better it is.
