Aviation critic and former Japan Airlines pilot Hiroyuki Kobayashi also envisions the arrival of flying cars, with appropriate controls in place.
“Flying cars can be achieved, but of course regulation is important. Ensuring the safety of flying cars is a requirement for widespread use. Without proper regulation, many accidents will occur,” warned Kobayashi.
On the future prospects for flying cars and the requisite legal framework to incorporate them into daily life, Kobayashi remains positive, if cautious, “I think that flying cars have a future and the technology for them will develop further and further. Regulations always follow technology. The key to the success of flying cars is the proper balance of regulations with the technology.”
