The DeLorean DR-7 air­craft is the in­ven­tion you hope will see the light of day. This fixed wing car/plane isn’t that far-fetched re­ally and looks like an at­trac­tive piece of ma­chin­ery.

Founder of DeLorean Aerospace, Paul DeLorean, took the wraps off this in­cred­i­ble ver­ti­cal take-off and land­ing (VTOL) DR-7, a few months ago. It re­minds us of how the Har­rier jet can take off from a land­ing pad, mak­ing it per­fect for tight quar­ters. It has what the com­pany de­scribes as an in­dus­try first, with cen­ter­line twin vec­tor­ing propul­sion sys­tem.The DR-7 is a com­muter plane with au­ton­o­mous ca­pa­bil­i­ties and with an ex­pected top speed of 240 mph or 385 km/h which can seat two. One can only en­vi­sion or dream of fly­ing in some­thing like this. It cer­tainly brings back some of those feel­ings you once felt when the DeLorean car was fea­tured in the hit movie Back To The Fu­ture.

This air­craft is ex­pected to cost be­tween $250$300k, ac­cord­ing to eVTOL News.

The real es­tate mar­ket is ripe for res­i­den­tial air parks, and in much of the cases, the hangar is at­tached to the homes and of­ten dwarf­ing the house.The DeLorean DR-7 would fit nicely into one of these com­mu­ni­ties if it ever sees the pro­duc­tion stage.
