A Magic Carpet or Flying Carpet is a carpet that can rapidly transport passengers who sit on top of it, usually by flying through the air. It typically features a Persian carpet design. TheOtherWiki gives [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_carpet more details]] and some examples.

* The trope appears in [[http://poulandersonappreciation.blogspot.com/2012/09/heinleinian-origins.html related]] works by Creator/PoulAnderson and Creator/RobertAHeinlein. In Heinlein's Magic, Inc., carpets are by 'haulage companies' but fail when above consecrated ground, so carpet routes are routed around churches etc. In Anderson's "Literature/OperationChaos" and related works, enchanted flying carpets are used in military applications and as a cultural equivalent for the family sedan. Broomsticks are racier, and roughly culturally equivalent to motorcycles. Both books are set in {{Magitek}} worlds.
