This is the amazing story of the Maverick Flying Car:
Steve Saint of I-TEC drove his road-legal flying car from Florida to Oshkosh, WI this summer. Since then, the FAA has also issued the Maverick a S-LSA aircraft airworthiness certificate. I-TEC hopes to be in production by the time of the EAA Oshkosh 2011 event.
Perhaps even more interesting than his flying car is his life story. His father was a Christian missionary in the Ecuadorian Amazon jungle and their plane was shot down by the Warowani tribe.
His father was killed and Steve was adopted and raised by the Warowani indians in the Amazon – not a story you hear every day in the 21st century!
He designed the car to be able to reach the remotest places and to be able to deliver medicines.
