A revolutionary flying car can rescue civilians from places where helicopters can’t, it can also move people and material to places where helicopters can’t, especially in urban environments. And it can also go where helicopters can, but in supposedly a much safer fashion. Missions such as power-line maintenance and high-rise construction that are executed by standard helicopters today, could be done by variants of this car in the future. This craft could also revolutionize emergency air ambulance service as we know it today as well as airborne law enforcement in urban areas. Even firefighting and rescuing people from fires in skyscrapers has been floated as a mission.
