Being able to land and drive not only solves the “last mile problem” but inclement weather will no longer stop your trip. Running on premium unleaded automotive gasoline, the same engine powers the propeller in flight or the rear wheels on the ground. Converting between flight and drive modes is comparable to putting down the top on your convertible and you can keep the Transition® at home in the garage: flying has never been so convenient!
Inventors around the world have been trying to combine the ease and utility of driving with the three-dimensional freedom of flying since the beginning of the 20th century. The “flying car” has become a pop icon of the dream that never quite comes true. Until now. Terrafugia intends to be the company that catalyzes the creation of a flying car industry.
Their first product, the Transition® is a two-place, fixed wing, street legal airplane which has been internationally heralded as the “first practical flying car”. It is designed to fit in a single car garage, be safely driven on the highway, and be flown in and out of general aviation airports. It brings a new level of freedom, flexibility and fun to personal aviation and you can reserve yours today.
