a small, personal flying vehicle
Bowden Snell was now developing the film in his room at the Flash office, and the aerocar which had brought him was still outside the large bay window swinging gently to and fro at its moorings in the summer breeze.
Aerocars floated about in the air above the thoroughfares. Jak explained that invisible repulsion rays suspended them in space.
He slid back into the aërocar, two badly frightened Circle Guards with him; the seals were set and he soared away.
In the dark, a transfer was made to an aerocar, which took off immediately on a course directly over the Venusian jungles.
A pair of small helicopters, emergency orange, wait with blades drooping, and a pair of aerocars stand on their pads.
A BASS aerocar is approaching the house from the northeast. The identity of the driver is Michael Ares.

The word has also been used as a brand name for Molt Taylor's real-life invention, "an FAA-certified roadable airplane he designed and developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s" (Flying Magazine, Feb. 1996).
