There are several other flying vehicle projects worldwide.

While the developer claims the BlackFly is simple to master and requires no formal licensing in the States, operating the VTOL will require captains to complete the FAA Private Pilot written examination and pass vehicle familiarization and operator training.

'When you press the thumb-stick to climb, you have absolute full control. Interestingly, for aircraft control device is not required a pilot's license.

Californian company Opener has unveiled what it believes is the first flying vehicle you'll want. 'Autonomous. And we had a payload of 2,000 pounds'. Uber has also been exploring the possibility of introducing flying vehicles. The Hiller Aviation Museum in Silicon Valley displays several flying cars that just didn't get off the ground.

But the museum's head of operations, Willie Turner, believes this latest batch might be on to something - as long as aviation authorities can accommodate the new ideas. "Because they didn't have the computers".

While many companies have created fully-functioning flying cars, the rules around using them legally have yet to be updated.

As well as BlackFly and Kitty Hawk, companies such as Uber are also seeking to get into the flying vehicle market - if indeed there ever is one.

Marcus Leng wants "Blackfly" to be on sale next year so anyone can buy it.

BlackFly can also fly autonomously, Mr Leng said. He was carried by balloon into the stratosphere, then parachuted almost 136,000 feet - breaking a world altitude record in 2014.

France strikers Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe have both scored three times so far in Russian Federation . Kane is still looks more than likely to win the Golden Boot, after scoring in his first three appearances.

Users can learn to fly the unusual vehicle in minutes, the company claims.

MAKING HISTORY "I just saw the future".

It's no longer technology standing in the way, he says, but rather regulations governing flight.

"Now we have the technology", he said. You don't need a pilot's license, but you do need a few minutes' worth of training before hopping in and taking flight.

Currently, it is unable to fly at night or over urban areas under current federal regulations.

Alan Eustace, who previously worked as senior vice president of knowledge at Google and serves on Opener's board, heralded BlackFly's achievements.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly quoted Leng as saying early versions of the auto carried a payload of 2,000 pounds, instead of 200.

"They're just fun to fly", Leng said.
