I don’t know about you, but I have been waiting for a few years to get my hands on a flying car. Personal flying devices are nothing new though. Take the WASP (Williams Aerial Systems Platform) for instance. It was a small, lightweight flying device powered by a modified Williams F107 turbofan aircraft engine. It was called the “Flying Pulpit” for a good reason.
The Williams X-Jet was designed to carry one person. It could move in any direction, accelerate rapidly, hover, and rotate on its axis. To control it, the operator had to lean in the direction he/she desired. The Williams X-Jet could travel at speeds up to 60 miles per hour. Unfortunately, it was discontinued after an evaluation by the U.S. Army.
