The 2012 Transition Street-Legal Airplane is a practical answer to the futuristic concept of the flying car.
Terrafugia is a growing aerospace company founded by pilots and engineers from MIT. The company’s name is Latin for “escape the earth.” Terrafugia’s mission is to design and deliver revolutionary, practical air and land vehicles that provide freedom, flexibility and fun to their customers.
The Transition combines the unique convenience of being able to fold its wings with the ability to drive on any surface road in a modern personal airplane platform. Stowing the wings for road use and deploying them for flight at the airport is activated from inside the cockpit.
Check out the futuristic vehicle in this edition of “The Car Coach” in the video above.
