Maverick Flying Car

I grew up in the Congo where my parents were missionaries.  One of the ways we got around was through the services of Mission Aviation Fellowship.  My mother-in-law just shared this video with me.  What an AMAZING concept!  The builder is also the son of missionary parents who flew for MAF.  Last summer, Steve Saint of I-TEC drove his road-legal flying car from Florida to Oshkosh. Since then the FAA has also issued the Maverick a S-LSA aircraft airworthiness certificate. I-TEC hopes to be in production by EAA Oshkosh 2011. Steve’s dream is to have the Maverick available to drive/fly into the furthest remote corners of the world where roads are scarce, airports are non-exestant, and the needs are great!

    Another great video was done by CNN. Also Popular Mechanics gave them an innovation award and did a large article on them most of which was about their mission.
