A company in the United States says it has moved a step closer to making a flying car a reality.

Terrafugia in Massachusetts says it has successfully test-flown a street-legal aeroplane for eight minutes and hopes to have it on the market within a year.

Would-be owners will need both a driver's and pilot's licence.
