The Terrafugia Transition is the first two-seater vehicle that can drive on any surface and has foldable wings that transforms into a personal airplane.
This cool vehicle/plane can fly at a speed of 115 MPH and has a 460-mile range. It reportedly “requires a 1,700-foot (one-third of a mile) runway to take off and can fit in a standard garage.”
The “flying car” will sell for $194,000.
The Terrafugia Transition has just received special approval from US air authorities:
The FAA has just awarded the Terrafugia Transition an exemption which will allow the 1,440-pound car/aircraft hybrid to fly under a “light sport” designation, even though it hits the scales at a hefty 120 lbs. more than the rules allow. A light sport pilot license only requires 20 hours of seat time – far less than what a full license would demand.
