Flying Car: The Terrafugia


Terrafugia intends to lead the creation of a new flying car industry that will help humanity achieve this new dimension of personal freedom. Their transformer automobile to aircraft design and invention allows a pilot to drive from home to and and from the airport, while taking off and soaring the friendly skies, all in the same vehicle. Owning one will set the owner back about 300k, and requires a pilot’s license. The company expects retail models to be available by 2020.

Two models are currently in development.

The Transition®

From the company’s website www.terrafugia.com:
The Transition® is the transportation of the future today. A street-legal airplane that converts between flying and driving modes in under a minute, the Transition® brings a new level of freedom, flexibility, and fun to personal aviation. It gives the pilot the option to land and drive in bad weather, provides integrated ground transportation on both ends of the flight, and fits in a standard single car garage at home. The Transition® can fly in and out of over 5,000 public airports in the U.S. and is legal to drive on public roads and highways. It is the only light aircraft designed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, and it is also equipped with a full-vehicle parachute for additional safety. Terrafugia is in the advanced stages of testing the Transition® in preparation for early production. You can reserve your Transition® today.


From the company’s website www.terrafugia.com:
TF-X™ is Terrafugia’s vision for the future of personal transportation. A four-seat, plug-in hybrid electric flying car with fly-by-wire vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities, TF-X™ is designed to bring personal aviation to the world. The design will make use of the high power density and reliability of modern electric motors in combination with parallel power and control system architectures to achieve a higher level of safety than modern automobiles. TF-X™ will provide true door-to-door transportation combined with the freedom of vertical takeoff and landing — creating a new dimension of personal mobility.
