Not practical

This is impractical and too costly for the layperson and the great majority of the population. Trains, buses, and planes still do a better job as all transport the most amount of passengers with the least energy per seat. Only a rich fool would buy and use this concept.:(

When I was growing up they had some aerocars on display at the San Diego Aerospace Museum. It burned down, but back then, there were a handful of flying cars, and many of us assumed that cars would all fly in a decade or two.

Never happened.

Funny. My mother and I were just talking about how I live just a few miles from a small airport and we have literally dozens of private/semi-public airstrips near our property up North.

Yes, but the concept is a good starting point. Next, they'll offer two-seaters. Then they will offer four-seaters with cargo capacity. If I could take my regular long-distance trips in a fraction of the time it takes me to drive, it's a big win. Plus, for states like California, we have huge problems with overcrowded and deteriorating roads.

You'll still need a rotorcraft pilot's license, and to buy the thing. If you buy a new one for less than a third of a million bucks, I'll eat the brochure. Without ketchup.

It says 100 orders would be over a billion in sales. So 10 million dollars each?

Would be nice to see an actual functional model.
