Not exactly the same thing as the drones we'd been looking at, but...
Approximately 10 years ago, Samson Sky announced their intention to build the first-ever flying sports car.
Work on that car later began taking place in a hangar at the Prineville Airport.
Long before that, however, the Switchblade was a dream created by Sam Bousfield, founder and CEO of Samson Sky — and creator of the Switchblade. He dreamed of a flying car as early as the fifth grade. Later, as an inventor and an architect, he decided it was time to make his vision a reality.
In a recent corporate video released by Samson Sky, Bousfield commented, "The real purpose behind this design, and doing the Switchblade in the first place, is so that we could make aviation (aircraft) more useful. Not something you do just on weekends for fun or every once in a while for business, but something you could use to make your life better — to actually get around the country, to go places you wouldn't ordinarily be able to get to."
