But while it seems like the world is well on its way to bringing flying cars to reality this year, there are obvious challenges that could prove to be a barrier for adoption — regulations.

Given that these revolutionary machines can be driven on land and fly, it will likely prompt questions regarding safety standards and operational requirements, which we don’t have yet for this kind of vehicle. While most people in the U.S. today can drive and have driver’s licenses, very few will have pilot’s licenses and training, which could be a consideration, or even requirement, before anyone can own a driving/flying car hybrid.

In any case, Aeromobil assures consumers that the vehicle will be compliant with existing regulatory frameworks already in place for both cars and airplanes, which means their vehicle could actually take to the streets, and skies, very soon, and change the way we travel forever.
