The 1941 Cessna Family Car of the Air Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Email Newsletter Posted by: pam kueber • May 19, 2009 It’s a bird… it’s a plane… no, it’s Mrs. America in her flying car. Seems that in 1941-1942 Cessna had a plan to build the Cessna Family Car of the Air after the war ended. Wonder what happened… guess the Flubber didn’t work out after all.

Thanks for posting this. I had no idea! Reply fjp says May 25, 2009 at 1:02 am Think about all the trouble we have with people operating motorized vehicles in two dimensions. Now give those same people airplanes. It’s almost too scary to comprehend. Interestingly, on Cessna’s own website they claim the Cessna 170 was their Family Car of the Air.
