If you magically introduced one of these aircars for a price of about

Ford, Toyota, Daimler Chrysler, et al would all be declaring bankruptcy in
short order

Unless of course, they had all at least partially refitted their factories
to PRODUCE aircars! Then those factories would be busier then ever. Hans
Moller has been trying very hard to get a big auto maker to partner with him
so he can have the resources necessary to make the aircar practical and
affordable but he has had no takers. When trying to do this in the
aerospace sector a Boeing v.p. told him "we just don't see a large market
for aircars!" lol!!

I will say that Moller has kept on pushing back the date of his flight
testing for his latest four-seater aircar design which is the one he wants
to mass produce. This is not a good signal to potential investors out there
but at least he is doing his best to not rush things and really get botched

I agree! It will be very interesting to see how everyone jumps on the
bandwagon when the aircar is shown to be practical and is being mass
produced by one of the giants of auto or aerospace manufacturing.

and you'd have millions of unionized autoworkers out on the streets

Nope, they would be most likely building aircars!

John Clarke asked:
Then who is making all those aircars?

Exactly! I dream of owning an aircar. My fondest wishes are that Hans
Moller is successful in making his craft airworthy and practical. The world
is still very vast and travel generally expensive(especially when living in
Alaska). I want places like L.A. and Vegas to be within my area of
visitation just like Valdez is now!
