    The automated flying car is a long way off. I don't think to many people would feel comfortable flying with out a pilot!

    ...is this some of that public/private partnership?? It may open up many of the rooftops in the metro? I wonder how much of the taxpayers money is being spent on this adventure??

    ...it's.a perpetual motion machine. Congress' pet projects from lobbiest injected into law and fed by appropriations! It's signed by those who can say it's "creating jobs"! The "sheeple" vote by short term memory.

    How does the cycle be broken?? Promise said, promise kept?? Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts, absolutely?? It's time for the people to take bscb the power!!

    I think this more of research project than an actual service development on the taxpayers dime. After the self driving UBER Volvo running over a woman in Arizona I think anyone trusting self flying cars are along way off. I know as a kid I expected flying cars by now, but there is a lot of technology and variables to be worked out here. Congress killed the American SST project but now supports NASA teaming up with UBER for flying cars. Amazing.
