A flying saucer that glides three metres off the ground and carries two passengers has gone into commercial production.

US company Moller International has begun to manufacture parts for its Jetsons-like personal flying pod, the M200G Volantor. The M200G is the size of a small car and is designed to take off and land vertically.

Company founder Dr Moller calls the craft "the ultimate off-road vehicle" as it is able to travel over any surface.

The flying saucer is designed to fly at an altitude of up to three metres, where it benefits from extra lift created by a cushion of air - known as ground effect.

This allows the M200G to glide over terrain at 50mph, powered by eight of the Company's Rotapower rotary engines.

The company has said the price for its M200G could start as low as £44,340 depending on the number ordered. Link
