(FOX BUSINESS) – A Japanese flying car project is one step closer to taking off into the mainstream.
SkyDrive Inc. announced Friday that it carried out a successful test flight with one person aboard, releasing images of a contraption with propellers lifted several feet off the ground that hovered in a netted area for four minutes.
“We want to realize a society where flying cars are an accessible and convenient means of transportation in the skies and people are able to experience a safe, secure, and comfortable new way of life,” the company’s CEO, Tomohiro Fukuzawa, said in a statement.
Fukuzawa says he hopes the car can be made into a real-life product by 2023, but he acknowledged that making it safe was critical.
