IIRC, a fews years back a magazine writer showed up with a VFR and was not treated badly. Course, it was a GIRL.

It's called an autogyro. They've been around since the 30's.

All private flight transportation aimed at the masses will remain purely conceptual for the simple fact that 90% of the mass public have enough trouble navigating in a 2D plane without screwing up. I shudder at the thought of a morning commute in the skies. At least the salvage yards and scrap metal processors would have job security!

Not on a Guzzi. Are you going to stop and help out the stranded HD rider?

I need to subscribe to Popular Mechanics again. Is that magazine still around? I seem to remember thay had plans for building an autogyro, hang glider, and hot air balloon, etc. using discarded materials around your house - Oh, and the always available used lawn mower engine. Or was that for the doodle bug?

I believe I could strap the 7.62 semi-auto to the thing and make sure no one flew in front of me.
