New Hampshire Opens its Roads to Flying Cars

Taking a step toward a dream over a century in the making, New Hampshire became the first state in the nation to open its public highways to flying cars when Gov. Chris Sununu signed a transportation bill, HB 1182, into law.

Worried New Hampshire motorists, take note: The cars won’t be flying above your lane. Instead, the new law makes it possible for them to drive on public roads, taking pilots from airports to their final terrestrial destination.

“This is a landmark event, and early adopters of this type of state legislation will be the leaders of a new transportation technology,” said Sam Bousfield, CEO of Samson Sky, one of three companies currently manufacturing flying cars. “This is something the public has been yearning for decades to see.”
