"Where are our jetpacks? I really thought we'd have our backyard fliers by now."

T H E   J E T S O N   S Y N D R O M E ,  def :  " The widespread public expectation, especially since WW II, of the imminent availability of a Personal Flying Vehicle, that is: A diminutive one or two-place aircraft that can hover, land and take-off vertically; that can be flown by non-pilots, being intuitively controlled and easy enough for anyone to learn; that is safe, by virtue of its aerodynamic descent capability which, should the engine fail, automatically produces a "parachute-type" landing; Said 'Personal Backyard Flyer' is practical--having a useful payload and range. The primary aim of this design is to gain acceptance into the mass-market, to provide utility and a recreational experience to sportsmen, prospectors, resource workers, hunters, and adventurers. Collaterally, there is also the expectation that, should such a vehicle become successful in the marketplace, it would represent a Transformative Technology, which, in time, would result in significant social change.
