I agree. Years ago, I worked at a private airport (Piper dealer) and took flying lessons as a perk. I had 20+ hours of solo time and cross-country solo time in a PA-28-140 when I stopped and went on to bigger and better things.
I can’t picture a bunch of week-end warriors bombing around in cars, let alone flying cars.
These vehicles would be strictly hobby items.
Weather is such a big factor in aviation (and a factor in many accidents) compared with driving cars that people could not rely on them for transportation as they do automobiles. Add to that, people texting while flying and flying with dogs in their laps.
We had a saying at the airport, concerning private pilots, general aviation, and aircraft, and weather. If you have time to spare, go by air! Delays are frequent and inconvenient.
When people don’t face this reality then accidents occur. Think: Lebron James (is that his name and how you spell it? I don’t watch sports.).
There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots!
