Bookmark and Share
Back to the Future may have been right- Flying cars could exist in 2015. Richard welcomes an inventor who has designed a prototype of a "flying car." Then - what's fact and what's fiction when it comes to Hollywood's depictions of UFO's? We'll hear from an expert.
Episode Segments:
 
The Conspiracy Show: Skycar Volantor
Inventor Paul Moller has designed a prototype of a "flying car" The Skycar fits in a single car garage, takes off and lands vertically, and is designed to fly at over 300 miles an hour. It can be driven on the street to a nearby Vertiport (Heliport) where it will use the automated highway in the sky called HITS, under development by the US government.

Guest(s) Appearing on this Episode
Paul Moller
PAUL MOLLER founded the Moller International and has served as the company's President since its formation. He holds a Masters in Engineering and Ph.D. from McGill University.

Dr. Moller was a professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at the University of California, Davis, from 1963 to 1975, where he developed the Aeronautical Engineering program. In 1972 he founded SuperTrapp Industries and was Chief Executive Officer, as SuperTrapp became the most recognized international name in high-performance engine silencing systems. SuperTrapp Industries was sold in 1988.

1983 Dr. Moller founded the Moller International to develop powered lift aircraft. Under his direction the Company completed contracts with NASA, NOSC, DARPA, NRL, Harry Diamond Labs, Hughes Aircraft Company, California Department of Transportation and the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air force. These contracts included the development and deployment of numerous unmanned aerial vehicles and Wankel based engines. Dr. Moller has received 43 patents including the first U.S. patent on a fundamentally new form of powered lift aircraft.* You can also learn about Dr. Paul Moller on his Wikipedia page:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Moller

Moller International was incorporated in 1983 as a continuation of its efforts to design, manufacture, and market safe, low cost, and easy to fly vertical takeoff and landing ("VTOL") aircraft called volantors. It had developed and demonstrated this technology and received sufficient feedback to be confident that volantors have an enormous number of immediate commercial, paramilitary and military applications. Once the emerging "highway in the sky" (HITS) is in full operation, the volantor will be the ideal personal commuter aircraft to utilize it. Approximately $210 million (today's dollars) has been expended by the company to create and demonstrate its volantor, aerobot, and engine technologies.
