Parajet Skycar targets Late 2012 Deliveries

In 2009, Nextbigfuture covered the Parajet Skycar. At the time they were projecting deliveries for late 2010.

Parajet Automotive is now projecting late 2012 for deliveries of the roughly $80,000 fabric wing flying car

In flight mode the Skycar is suspended by the latest ram-air wing and capable of take-off from a field or airstrip in less than 200 metres. It will be easier and safer to fly than any other aircraft, as it has no pitch control and therefore impossible to stall or dive. Should the engine fail, the pilot would simply glide down into the nearest field or strip of sandy desert.
