Next Gen Carbon Neutral Flying Cars

The 2010 Parajet Skycar

— November 21, 2008 — Autos
European company, SkyCar Expedition, claims to have the “world’s first biofuelled flying car.” As a follow-up to a previous post on the Parajet Skycar, the vehicle and worthiness are being challenged with an “extraordinary journey from London to Tombouctou in Mali - an intrepid maiden voyage of some 6000 km through the heart of the Sahara and the frighteningly named ‘Empty Quarter,’” according to the company.

What I am really interested in is their next generation models set for production in 2010. These styles, mixed in with the soon-to-be-proven performance and handling, will be a more attractive ride to accompany me and my date on our own maiden voyage.

I am looking forward to seeing what this market segment will develop, and look like, in the next few years. Soon I guess it will be safe to say that heaps of people will be flying high.
Trend Themes
1. Sustainable Aviation - The development of biofuelled flying cars opens up opportunities for sustainable aviation, reducing carbon emissions in the transportation industry.
2. Next Generation Transportation - The advancements in flying car technology and design present disruptive innovation opportunities for the transportation industry, revolutionizing personal transportation and mobility.
3. Long-distance Air Travel - The successful maiden voyage from London to Tombouctou showcases the potential for long-distance air travel with flying cars, which could disrupt the airline industry and provide faster and more efficient travel options.
Industry Implications
1. Aviation - The emergence of biofuelled flying cars creates opportunities for the aviation industry to invest in sustainable and eco-friendly aircraft designs and technologies.
2. Automotive - The development of next generation flying cars presents disruptive innovation opportunities for the automotive industry to expand their offerings into aerial mobility, creating hybrid transportation solutions.
3. Tourism - The potential for long-distance air travel with flying cars could revolutionize the tourism industry by enabling faster and more personalized travel experiences, attracting adventure-seeking travelers.
