Vertical Take-Off & Landing" Aircraft


"VERTICAL TAKE-OFF & LANDING" designs shown here are essentially aircraft and hovercraft about the size of an automobile. With the exception of the Avrocar and the Cartercopter, these vehicles have a width of eight and one-half feet or less. This is the maximum allowable road width for an automobile. Some are just designs, ideas of what the creator thinks a flying car ought to look like. However, some are real efforts to design, build and test an actual project. They are included here because they may have great potential in the future development of a truly successful dual-purpose vehicle.
