Can an aeronautical idea still seem futuristic decades, or even generations, after it first tickled the imagination? The public—flying and non-flying alike—certainly seems just as beguiled today with the idea of a flying car as it was when your grandfather earned his plane-spotting credentials by pointing out DC-3s and Lockheed Constellations overhead. The concept of a car equally comfy on an airway and a highway was causing considerable camera clicking at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., where the “roadable” Terrafugia Transition drove in, unfolded its wings, and flew.
Nextant Aerospace, adding a remanufactured King Air to its remanufactured Hawker 400 offering, says the King Air (Nextant G90XT) will fly early next year.
Elbit Systems has upgraded infrared systems that see through darkness and weather for nearly visual landings and takeoffs, as well as taxi operations.
Join us for the unofficial end to the flying season on November 8 at St. Simons Island, Georgia.
