Too young (66) and too busy for writing my memories!
Ultimate step of animal and human evolution = individual aeromobility, for humans the only conceivable antidote to the threat of global US air superiority about to close in on global freedom.
Maximum safety on the road calls for big, heavy cars (with mostly three empty passenger seats as an alibi for volume and weight) plus one-way road networks with huge footprint on landscape... to go nowhere really interesting (roads being built and owned by State... and only where State wants you to be able to go).
Maximum safety in the air calls for small, light, swift automatically controlled single-seated (or at best tandem-seated) VERTOL-aircraft with high collision-avoidance reactivity allowing for as many individual virtual electronic airways as there are pilots in the airspace... yet zero footprint on the landscape, like birds, and with several orders of magnitude lower collision probability than cars.
No existing VERTOL-concept is eligible as Personal Aircraft (helicopter has low horizontal reactivity and limited speed; tilt-rotor is not autorotatable; Rotodyne makes hellish noise; Sykorsky's X2 is the only possible PA, yet also horizontally instable!
Civil society taking possession of the global airspace with myriads of PA (Personal Aircraft) to outnumber the supersonic fighter-bomber fleet the US government uses as joker to enforce global power.
