FLYING CARS ABOUT TO BECOME A REALITY – NBAA PANEL TELLS THE STORY
On October 11, 2017, at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Switchblade Owner Brian Purdy was a panelist for “Skip the Traffic: Fly Your Car”. Pictured here from left to right are: Dezo Molnar, Flying Car Racing; Alex Gertsen (panel host), NBAA, Director Airports and Grand Infrastructure; Brian Purdy, Switchblade Demonstrations, and Dorothy Cochrane, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Brian Purdy had this to say about his experience at NBAA: “It is always great to talk to people about the Transportation Transformation, as I call it. Being able to travel from point to point on your own schedule. The skeptics had valid questions or concerns, but these got addressed and I saw the light come on as they gained a better understanding of the thoroughness of the Switchblade design and concept of operations. I really enjoyed being part of the panel and meeting the panelists and our host”.
Barry Jay, Samson marketing Advisor, was at the NBAA Convention for the panel and to connect with people on Samson’s behalf. He reported: “Brian did a great job and really painted a pragmatic picture of why the Switchblade is the ideal choice. He shared with us that while on the flight line, he heard, “It’s refreshing to see a flying car concept that’s based on good science to meet customer desire.”
