I hope there is a decent interlock to stop the pilot pressing the wrong button!!!

Dual purpose vehicles seem to be a recipe for disaster, if not physical then financial. Combining a car and boat is bad enough requiring compromises for each role its intended to provide but a flying car escalates these to a dramatically higher level. Such vehicles have been tried many times over the years and at best only had very limited success.

If you prefer 3 wheels, this flying car has been approved for road use in some countries. Still not flight certified yet I think:

It's not the vehicle that's the problem ,it's the fact the driver would have to be a qualified pilot. As you know all the regulations that go with it.
