A Short History Of The Flying Car

July 1924 Popular Science

In July 1924, famed fighter pilot, racecar driver, and automotive designer Eddie Rickenbacker wrote the first story about flying cars in Popular Science. The headline read “Flying Autos in 20 Years.” Since then, readers have waited patiently-for generations. We’ve learned not to make promises, but in the next two years a few functioning, legal flying cars are set to reach the market or enter development. Call it a revolution. Call it about time. Just don’t call it science fiction.

Because, seriously, what’s the hold up?
