2020 Volkswagen Aqua Hovercraft Concept
A new concept from Volkswagen. -Info- The Volkswagen Aqua is a futuristic hovercraft concept created by Yuhan Zhang, a 21 year old designer from China. Yuhan just graduated with honors from Xihua University with a degree in Industrial Design. Currently she's in the process of selecting a Transportation Design course to further her studies. The Volkswagen Aqua is designed to cope with the wide variety of terrain which covers China. From the lakes, rivers and coastal waters, to the roads, wetlands and snow and ice. The concept was shortlisted in the CDN Car Design Awards China, based on the brief entitled simply; "Chinese off-road vehicle" by Volkswagen. Like most hovercraft, the Volkswagen Aqua uses more than one engine. The primary motor, which is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, is used to drive the main fan which inflates the skirt around the vehicle and raises the Aqua just above the ground. The fans at the rear of the vehicle are powered by individual electric motors to provide forward thrust and directional control. The styling of the Volkswagen Aqua is extremely clean and simple. There's very little clutter to the lines, except perhaps at the rear due to the quartet of fans. The interior has room for two people, and features a similar minimalist vibe as the exterior. Perhaps our only area of concern is with how you actually enter the vehicle. See that small round hatch at the rear of the vehicle, the one located where the rear window would normally be? That's your one and only door.

Amazing Helicopter Flying, Car Chase
This video exposes the low level helicopter flying done to chase cars for the amazing footage you may see in a film or on TV. It's real life Grand Theft Auto, no CGI, no fake stuff! The truck I am in is a real real bone shaker, it was hauling a full size trailer and that chopper comes very close to the trailer when passing. I never felt easy about how close it was to the truck. Has to be some of the most impressive flying I have seen, luckily I grabbed some good video of the amazing low level flying. Pilot Gary Ticehurst. You can see the work Gary did via this link. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0862645/ Sadly Gary passed away in a Helicopter crash in 2011. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-08-18/abc-helicopter-crashes-at-lake-eyre/2 845962 This is a Nissan car commercial from the late 90's, and the director Mr Peter Cherry is recreating a scene from the film 'The Deer Hunter' where a car does a risky overtaking move on a truck leaving an industrial site.

First Flight: "Flying Car" Terrafugia Transition Roadable Aircraft
Not a flying car, but a roadable aircraft, the Terrafugia Transition took flight for the first time March 5, 2009. Visit http://www.avweb.com and search for "Terrafugia" for more. Video by Glenn Pew http://www.glennpew.com





Terrafugia - Flying Car
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Di2v4OwFQQ THIS VERSION HAS BETTER MUSIC. wont let me change the music so watch the other one. :) Woburn, MA June 3, 2009: Terrafugia, Inc. has successfully completed the flight testing program designed for its Transition Roadable Aircraft Proof of Concept. Having been dubbed The Flying Car, the Transition completed its historic first flight on March 5, 2009 with 27 additional flights completed over the next several weeks. The successful completion of flight-testing with the Proof of Concept concludes the first stage of a four stage process to bring the Transition into production. Work is underway on Stage 2, the Beta Prototype. First delivery is expected in 2011. The Proof of Concept vehicle is the first and only Transition to be built thus far. It has now achieved its goals by demonstrating driving, flying, and automated transformation between the two in one integrated aircraft. The flights conducted a plan set specifically for the Transition: characteristics such as handling, performance, and take-off and landing, stability and stall were evaluated. B-Roll footage is available of representative flights. The flight-testing program demonstrated the safety of the vehicle in the air while identifying modifications that will be incorporated into the next Transition model to be built, the Beta Prototype. Test Pilot Colonel (Retired) Phil Meteer had a positive review of flying the POC: I would like to keep flying this Proof of Concept vehicle, but it makes sense to move on to the Beta Prototype. Categorized as a Light Sport Aircraft, the Transition requires a Sport Pilot certificate to fly. It is a two-seat aircraft designed to take off and land at local airports and drive on any road. Transforming from plane to car takes the pilot less than 30 seconds. The Transition will cruise up to 450 miles at over 115 mph, will drive at highway speeds on the road, and fits in a standard household garage. The vehicle has front wheel drive on the road and a propeller for flight. Both modes are powered by unleaded automotive gasoline. By giving pilots a convenient ground transportation option, the Transition reduces the cost, inconvenience, and weather sensitivity of personal aviation. It also increases safety by incorporating automotive crash structures and allowing pilots to drive under bad weather. Refundable airframe reservations are currently being accepted. Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-gee-ah), based in Woburn, MA, is comprised of a team of award-winning engineers who have been advancing the state of personal aircraft since 2006. Founded by five pilots who are graduates of MIT and supported by a world-class network of advisors and private investors, Terrafugias mission is the innovative expansion of personal mobility. "Terrafugia" is Latin for "escape from land."

I was lucky to be invited to see this test flight ( I think this was shot pre 9/11) Not sure how far they are today on this car.
