Nice for a party trick, shiny websites or willy waving, dead in the water as realistic transport.

We've been seeing grandiose ideas like this almost since aviation began and none have got close to doing what they claimed. Why? because the construction and operation requirements of a car and an aeroplane simply aren't compatible.

Its like trying to make a hybrid of a cow and a chicken.
