As many of you may know, I have been obsessed with flying cars (or aeromobiles, as I like to call them) for some time now. See here and here. Moller International, developer of the SkyCar that I often use as an example of a viable aeromobile, announced recently that they have begun commercial production of their M200G Volantor, a flying saucer-type vehicle resembling the Jetson’s flying car, that Moller bills as “the ultimate off-road vehicle.” The initial price forecast for the Volantor is about $90k.

While not a true flying car in the sense of being able to fly yourself nearly anywhere, like work or the beach, the Volantor represents an important step towards an affordable flying car and a giant leap forward for personal aeromobility.
