We've had flying cars of our own for ages :-)
Fully agree with you. As a person with some flying experience, I am able to handle small planes but have found flying a helicopter to be far more difficult. On the other hand, flying seems difficult but is not as hard as some people believe. During the second world war, ordinary people with no flying experience were turned into pilots by the thousands very quickly. Hence if this thing actually becomes popular, it is not impossible to have many more trained pilots after a decade or two. Of course practical problems remain such as air traffic control, landing and take off sites and so on.
