Here comes the Tricycle Helicopter

The Dutch company PAL-V Europe BV plans to launch in 2009 a Tricycle Helicopter with wings that fold up so the vehicle can be used as a car. Called the PAL-V (short for Personal Air and Land Vehicle), the three-wheeled gyrocopter will lean into turns when driven on the road, go zero to 60 in five seconds and travel 340 miles on a tank of gas.

No mention of probable Airspeeds though, plus it appears to be another combustion engine polluter.
Also no mention of Pilot Licences and as to whether air traffic controllers will have more work cut out for them.
