The idea of flying cars in the world is not new because for the last few years many technology companies have been busy making vehicles that are capable of flying, including running on the road. Many companies in Germany, France, Japan, the United States, Switzerland and China, including Google and Uber, are building cars that will not only be able to fly but will run on electricity instead of fuel. Among such carmakers is the Japanese company SkyDrive Insurance, which claims to have successfully tested the small flying car they built. The startup is planning to start with round trips around various resorts, including Universal Studios Japan. “The initial model will fly basically on auto pilot, but it’s not 100 percent autonomous because a pilot would need to maneuver it in case of an emergency, for example,” Fukuzawa said.The goal of the startup is to sell at least 100 vehicles by 2028, each for the cost of an “expensive car,” according to the CEO.
