A new age of transport is near. A flying car called BlackFly, from Google's Larry Page, could go on sale next year. It can travel for up to 40km at a speed of 100kph. It could cost the same as a regular car. Canada has allowed its use. Even though it will fly in the sky, people will not need a pilot's license to fly it. However, users will have to pass a pilot's written examination. They will also need training in how to use the vehicle.

Critics say "car" is the wrong word because it has no wheels and cannot go on roads. It is a single-person drone. The company said: "Opener is re-energizing the art of flight with a safe and affordable flying vehicle that can free its operators from the everyday restrictions of ground transportation." A former Google vice-president said the age of personal flight is near. He said: "Things go from impossible to inevitable in a very short period of time."
