And I can't imagine that you will be allowed to take off with this thing without officially registering with air control each time.
agree, and some other links ...
20180308 PAL-V (Personal Air and Land Vehicle)
https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/lifestyle/flying-cars-eye-takeoff-at-geneva-motor-show-10023800
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".
Daily Covid-19 deaths in France are at the highest level since April, and on Thursday, authorities reported 47,637 new cases and 250 new deaths.
French media report that many Parisians have left the city - and their often cramped apartments - to spend lockdown in the countryside.

Germany is to become the first country in the world to bring vehicles without a driver from research into everyday life .

Very nice car, or helicopter or plane? :mrgreen:

Re: « What's on your mind? »

Post by gregster » Today, 01:16

I don't see how this will work in practice. :)
I mean, helicopter flying isn't the easiest type of flying anyway. And I can't imagine that you will be allowed to take off with this thing without officially registering with air control each time. Perhaps you will even have to take off from an official airfield... but sure, you always have your personal helicopter with you, that's nice. In theory 8-)
I am not really looking forward to these idiots - who kill uninvolved people with their illegal car races on public roads - getting their hands on these "cars".

Do the following in the following order. Do not skip any steps. 1) Be independently very wealthy or win a very big cash lottery. 2) Put in an order for one of the first copies of the flying car. If they accept your order, expect to pay a huge nonrefundable deposit. 3) If you are not already a helicopter pilot, take flying lessons. In the United States, you'll need a minimum of 40 flight hours. 50 to 60 hours is typical. This will take between 6 months to a year or longer. Expect to pay between $10K to $15K US for the lessons. 4) Wait until 2023 when your flying car is manufactured. If there are production problems, wait 6 to 18 months longer. 5) Pay for your flying car and accept delivery. Expect a huge delivery fee. 6) Enjoy!

Dutch flying car is officially allowed on the road: first copies delivered in 2023
The flying car of the company PAL-V has received a European type approval to go on public roads.
But before he can also take to the air, the green light is needed from the European aviation regulator.
PAL-V expects to be able to deliver the first flying cars to customers in 2023.

I'm not sure if I have 2-3 years in this situation. By the way, I congratulate everyone on the second wave of the epidemic. special hello to skeptics. it is a pity that you are getting smaller and smaller.

I recently conducted a mini-research, based on the growth dynamics of the infected in the first half of the year 2020. I hypothesized that attenuation would occur when at least 1 billion of the population suffered the disease. This is exactly the figure that denotes the working-age population, precisely those who, for the most part, are forced to go to work outside the home. Considering that for half a year there were about 30 million cases by the end of the year, I think there will be about 80-90 million. Each next year, the infected cases will increase by 10-15-20 profents. the conclusion suggests itself that only in 7-8 years will we see a weakening of the situation. this, of course, I did not take into account different errors, but there are also many of them. in absolute terms, we can consider them as its minus 1 year

wear masks ... 1952 in London ... Clean Air Act in 1956

In 1952, London was surrounded by a thick smog for several days, which took the lives of at least 4,000 people.

We can better keep friends with Donald Trump, the new president of the United States.
That is why we introduce our country to him in a way that will probably appeal to him the most.

Well, the question isn't if you will catch it, just when.
It would be more accurate to say that it may be that you are more likely to eventually catch it than not. I have not heard of any projections that say everyone will eventually catch it. Even if no precautions were taken, most experts believe that a population would reach “herd immunity” when most (60% - 70%) of the population has been infected. Even with the question of whether those who have had it will have long-term immunity, it is still not expected that it will infect everyone eventually.

And that, hopefully, is a worst-case scenario. If most people continue to take the recommended precautions until an effective vaccine is available and widely distributed, then the percentage of people who eventually get infected could be significantly lower.
