Now if a thing like a "flying car" is mentioned, the according vehicle from 60s TV show The Jetsons will very probably spring to mind - something this film very readily admits, too. What most people don't know is that one man, Paul Moller, who taught Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at the University of California from 1963 to 1975, has dedicated the last more than 4 decades to develop just that with his company Moller International - with varying degrees of success over the years: Now on one side, auxilliary technology to make a flying car (including vertical take-off and landing) has been rather clunky especially in past decades, and still isn't entirly up to speed, then finding investors isn't easy as it's impossible when the company will be able to turn a profit, with their central product, the Skycar, still being years from perfection let alone mass marketing. On the plus side, much of the technology that went into the Skycar is today applied into ever more popular drones - and even if flying cars might still sound like science fiction today, with the steady population growth and an ever increasing unwillingness to plaster even more of the land with highways and byways, taking the traffic to the skies will be the only logical solution ...

 

Now this is a truly fascinating documentary, and not only because it covers an almost science fiction-like topic that went under the radar for years and that's illustrated with some rather spectacular real life footage from years and years of research. But the film's not just a celebration of its subject matter but takes more serious and not always flattering aspects of the subject matter into account - only to make it a stronger story in the process. And many candid interviews with Paul Moller himself as well as his second-in-command of many years Zack Rabin, who both show their fascination for the idea, come what may, give this a very relatable dimension, making this a highly engaging and also entertaining documentary about something that sounds like science fiction - but might not be much longer.
