Start saving to buy this little flying wonder by the year 2015! Truly Flying Car by Terrafugia (Woburn, Massachusetts) has completed flight testing of the Transition POC (Proof of Concept). Introducing the Transition. Simply land at the airport, fold your wings up and drive home.
The anticipated base price is $279,000.
The vehicle can cruise in the air at 105 mph (172 km/h) and it’s top speed is at 115 mph (185 km/h). On the road it’s much slower, topping at 65 mph (105 km/h). It can cover a distance up to 490 miles in air (787 kilometers) and in case of unexpected problems it’s equipped with a full vehicle parachute, capable of landing the entire aircraft.
If you’re thinking of buying Terrafugia’s “hybrid”, you need the money and a pilot license you can get after 20 hours of flight time.
