20180308 PAL-V (Personal Air and Land Vehicle)
But Pal-V's Liberty will not be a vehicle for everyman:
Future drivers should expect to dish out between €10,000 and €20,000 (US$12,000-US$25,000) for pilot training,
in addition to the anticipated 300,000-500,000-euro cost for the machine itself, Dingemanse said.
That is the same price range as a small helicopter, he said, stressing though that Pal-V's flying car is "easier, maintenance costs are much lower,
(and) it's much more useful than a normal plane or helicopter."
Not everyone is convinced that flying cars will soon be darkening our skies.
"It's a beautiful idea," Ferdinand Dudenhoffer, who heads the Centre for Automotive Research in Germany .
But in light of the current air traffic density,
"it is difficult to imagine that there will be lots of additional flying saucers" filling the skies, he said.

Covid-19: Record traffic around Paris as second French lockdown begins - BBC News
Traffic around Paris hit record levels just hours before a new national lockdown came into force across France.
Jams stretched to a cumulative 430 miles (700 km) in the Ile-de-France region early on Thursday evening, local media reported.
Lockdown measures came into force at midnight on Friday (23:00 GMT) to tackle spiralling Covid infections.
People have been ordered to stay at home except for essential work or medical reasons.
President Emmanuel Macron said the country risked being "overwhelmed by a second wave that no doubt will be harder than the first".

French media report that many Parisians have left the city - and their often cramped apartments - to spend lockdown in the countryside.
