The Government of New Hampshire, USA, has passed a law allowing flying cars. On July 28 governor Chris Sununu signed the HB 1182 transportation law in July of this year.
"This is landmark legislation, and places New Hampshire at the leading edge of incorporating roadable aircraft into a state transportation system. I consider this ideal legislation for allowing this type of vehicle to become part of the broad, regular system of travel" says Sam Bousfield, CEO of Samson Sky, Oregon-based startup.
It should be noted that according to the law, flying cars will not be able to move freely through the air in New Hampshire — takeoff and landing will be allowed at special airfields. Such vehicles, which are designed to travel on normal roads, will be registered in the state and allowed to be used on the general infrastructure.
Flying cars are not new in the field of technology. The first patent of a flying machine was created by Joel Trout Rice in 1901, but the idea was not due to lack of appropriate permission.
