I always imagined that this day in age we’d be living like the Jetsons, with flying cars that would be flown into elevated homes and commercial properties; and with the invent of GPS, Onstar, and other technology, it is now an actual practicality.
Notwithstanding, aeronautical and aquatic vehicles are great for more than a mere statement of the ages. They could save considerable time during commutes, and can be utilized to save lives during natural disasters, like earthquakes, floods, volcanos, landslides, etc…
Flying cars are actually on the market now, though they are not quite what I had in mind. My vision of a flying car is one with retractable wings and that more resembles or is actually a traditional car, i.e. a Chevrolet Equinox, Toyota Prius (*hybrid), GMC Acadia (my personal favorites), etc., or one that could be flown and driven with blended ease as opposed to one that resembles a dwarfed airplane. The Terrafugia is closest to the flying car that I have in mind that I’ve seen thus far, though, again, I’d want my own to resemble or be my favorite brand/model of vehicle.
*Ideally, all vehicles would be hybrid or utilize electricity and gasoline, they’d all be flyable and aquatic (capable of being driven on water), for ultimate safety, even if laws would vary by state regarding when they are to be flown or driven on water. For example, certain states might require that cars are flown or driven on water only during emergencies. Other states might require that flying vehicles are flown only in aeronautical communities or heights, those in which every vehicle could fly and in which every residential and commercial property is literally heightened to compliment the flying cars.
Whether or not all cars become aeronautical and aquatic, those who purchase cars that are either or both should be required to acquire a special license; one should be trained and tested on the relevant procedures and safety guidelines that they should follow before, during, and afterwards.
Additional Safety Features
Certain flying cars are equipped with parachutes that provide an open canopy for the car itself in emergency situations, not merely the driver/pilot; and all aeronautical vehicles should be equipped with said parachutes.
GPS Navigation & AutoCorrect Features
Aeronautical vehicles should only be flown as and where prescribed by the Department of Transportation, i.e. at the prescribed heights and distances, and along the prescribed routes, to minimize risks and fatalities. GPS navigation and autocorrect or corrective steering systems should be required in all aeronautical/flying cars, as they would maintain order in the skies, particularly when aeronautical cars or more popularized, and by not only delivering a pilot/driver to an entered destination address, but by informing him or her that they might be flying too closely to other cars, and intrinsically reducing speed or shifting/moving to avoid a crash. The noted technology would additionally show and inform the driver/flyer when or where closest to his or her destination address he or she is clear for landing.
Imagine a several hour trip being reduced to less than an hour, and without boarding a commercial airplane.
All flying cars should additionally entail a layer of thermoplastic olefins, the material typically found in bumper cars, to further curtail hard and potentially fatal crashes. All cars and planes and even aquatic vehicles should entail a layer of thermoplastic olefins for said purposes.
OnStar and/or Similar Technology
All aeronautical and aquatic vehicles should be equipped with OnStar and/or similar technology * as an added safety measure in the event of malfunction.
Aeronautical communities that would consist of elevated homes, shopping malls/stores, night clubs, etc. to accommodate and compliment aeronautical cars would be wonderful real estate ventures.
Flying Buildings and Other Abodes
While flying buildings may not be ideal in the mainstream, they would be ideal in especially localities that are prone to natural disasters. One would be capable of cranking up and moving their homes to safety in such events.
Aeronautical/aquatic buildings, which are practical, I’m certain, and which would be ideally military ventures, could be utilized to retrieve and provide immediate shelter, food and water, and other resources to indigent communities in developing and other communities, or they could be utilized to remove and sustain entire communities faced with threat of impending danger, like tsunamis, for example…
Aeronautical and/or Aquatic Vacation Homes/World Tourism
Imagine that instead of buying or renting a vacation home in other cities or remote parts of the world one could fly and/or drive their aeronautical and/or aquatic home to any place in the world.
I saw news coverage a while back of what appeared to be a flying building hovering over Israel. I’d like to think that it was the Lord and/or His angels preparing for the ultimate rescue and elevation of humanity, which I’m thoroughly convinced is a matter that will require work on our part.
Let us labor with the Creator to build a whole new world, one that is truly reflective of our times.
