OK, so an engineer solves the last technical problems of flying cars. Seeing that most of the non-technical objections against flying cars are about the ability to drive, and the fact that self-driving cars are all the rage, he decides to make his flying cars self-flying, that is, you don't operate it yourself but only tell the autopilot where to go. To deal with the high cost, he decides to cooperate with Uber to offer a flying taxi service, and selling a few privately owned cars to the rich.
My question is: Could this flying car business be a success? And if so, how would this affect society?
