Continuing the theme from yesterday, that the future I always dreamed of is almost here, WE NOW HAVE A WORKING FLYING CAR!!!!!!! If this trend continues, we’re going to be living on the moon in the next decade! But I digress. This amazing car is the brainchild of Terrafugia Inc.
Six years after the initial announcement that Terrafugia, Inc. would develop a “roadable airplane,” the Transition has completed the first phase of flight testing. The flight testing, carried out at Plattsburgh International Airport in northern New York State, assessed the light sport aircraft’s full performance envelope. The Transition prototype was reported to perform “exceptionally well,” allowing the testing to be carried out quickly.
First customer delivery of a Terrafugia Transition is expected to occur in late 2012.
The price is estimated to be $279,000.00. A bit steep, but something you and a group of six or seven friends might want to get together and sell one kidney each in order to buy. For more information you can go to Terrafugia’s site.
