As the design of the Parajet SkyCar evolves (compare the vehicle above with this shot), so does the car's online presence. During the successful Parajet SkyCar Expedition, when the "World's First Bio-fuelled Flying Car" flew from London, England to Timbuktu in Mali, Africa, the car was highlighted on the general Parajet website. Now, though, the SkyCar gets its own site, complete with picture galleries, videos and archived news reports and announcements. Previously, Parajet said test flights of the skycar might happen this September, with a possible release date of early 2010. There is no mention of the test flights on the new webpage, but, looking forward, we can learn from the site about an upcoming talk at the Royal Geographical Society about the SkyCar's Africa journey. More exciting, details on how to pre-order a SkyCar are now available. Parajet is accepting fully refundable (and re-sellable) deposits of £10,000 ($16,338 U.S.) good towards the SkyCar's estimated price of £50,000 ($81,700). Deliveries are now expected to take place in late 2010.

      Don't buy this thing. I'm accepting $10,000 deposits on a warp driven space car. Just send the money to: fooledmetwice, com

      There is a big difference between flying and parasailing. This isnt really a flying car in my opinion. Just a sailing one and way not worth $80,000

      Stop putting your stupid ads on these sites. No one cares that you are selling a scam on how to make money and you are not who you say you are. You are just taking up space here.

        you won't die, jesus. probably safer than driving. As a bostonian, the ability to not deal with traffic would be amazing

        If you read the article, the company hopes to TEST this in September. You'll be one of the few, the proud, complete idiots who actually gets one and DIES if it ever gets off the ground.

      I want my Flying Car
      I was promised back in the 70's watching those 21st Century movies narrated by Walter Cronkite

      I can't just see it stalling in midair and crashing down onto the cars below.

      Just add on the additional $8,000, $10,000 or whatever you want your funeral to cost. If you want to do any serious travel, there is a good chance of dying--same as for any small, single engine aircraft. Check out most standard life insurance--private piloting is excluded, but can be had for a price, of course.

      If you want to see what the real future of flying cars looks like, go to moller.com . The president of Moller, Dr. Paul Moller was Dean of Aeronautics at UC Davis, and has been pursuing this since he built his first helicopter at age 15.
