A GERMAN STARTUP JUST MADE ‘FLYING CARS’ A REALITY


Lilium Aviation announced Thursday the first ever vertical takeoff and landing of a personal-use electric vehicle. Also known as a flying car. The idea is that the aircraft has the benefit of a helicopter in not needing a long runway, but is still capable of reaching the top speeds of a jet. Lilium says its personal jets will be available to fly out of backyard as soon as 2018.
