The SkyCruiser concept gets over the biggest problem of the flying car - needing a runway to land and take off from.

While flying cars that double as a plane are yet to become a reality, they already have some competition – from a flying car that can also work like a quadcopter.

Arizona-based start-up Krossblade says its SkyCruiser concept gets over the biggest problem of the flying car – needing a runway to land and take off from.

Instead, it has four rotors that allow it to take to the air – and then switch to fly like a normal plane.

“SkyCruiser is a concept five-seat hybrid VTOL transformer airplane with road-drive ability,” the firm developing the conce pt says.

“It enables a traveller to travel directly from point A to point B, instead of going from point A to an airport in a car say, then fly from the airport to another airport, and then drive with a car from the other airport to point B.”

It hopes to attract wealthy private jet users who value their time.

“Rather than spending three to four hours going from LA to San Francisco, for example, SkyCruiser takes you directly to your destination, point to point, in just a little over 1 hour.”
