Instead of driving a car to work everyday, why not take a plane? One aircraft construction company in the Moscow region claims to have made it possible. Its latest creation, the Sigma-5, is small and light enough to be parked and transported like a large car. At the same time, it has enough propulsion to carry about 600 kilos of weight at a speed of nearly 300 kilometres per hour. And, to top it off, it doesnt need a runway any flat surface will do. With its novelty look and a price tag comparable to that of a luxury car, it has the potential to become a futuristic alternative to waiting out traffic jams across Europe.
