Ever since he was a child, the engineer from Toulouse, Michel Aguilar, had a dream: “to help humanity take off”. He never gave up on his project to design a revolutionary flying engine that would allow anyone to leave dry land as easily as they now take the wheel of their car.
With his dream firmly entrenched, he drags in his wake like-minded companies and young engineers, and the flying car finally starts to seem feasible.
The words of the inventor of the airplane, Clément Ader, his illustrious predecessor, accompany him with a surprising modernity. Between the present and the future, between dream and reality, the documentary “The man and the flying car” paint the portrait of an atypical inventor who is both inspired and determined.
