Terrafugia To Enter Production With Transition Flying Car
In brief: Massachusetts-based Terrafugia has received the OK from the FAA and will begin production of the Transition flying car late next year.
Vehicle in the news
The flying car has been under development for six years and received National Highway Safety approval earlier this year. With approval from the FAA and a classification of "light sport aircraft", the Transition is now ready to go to production.
The flying 2-seater will enter production late next year with pre-orders already underway (over 100 have been reserved so far). The Transition can fly short distances as an airplane and fold up its wings to drive on roads as a car.
The concept was created by company founder Carl Ditrich while a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
And so ...
Priced at $279,000, pre-orders can be secured with a refundable deposit of $10,000 towards purchase.
