This paper addresses the design principles inherent in past flying automobiles and describes needed methodology for the development of future more advanced flying automobile concepts, emphasizing customer's needs and system requirements. The general aviation industry was analyzed and reasons for their stagnation/decline discussed. A proposal for a new private transportation system encompassing ground guided airways and its advantages for the private future air transportation are presented.
