a world with flying cars is now that much closer thanks to the new terrafugia transition a street legal flying car. the plane can fly in the air like a small plane or fold its wings for driving down the road. terrafugia has been working on personal aircrafts since 2006  and the transition is the result of their work. the vehicle can cruise in the air at 115 mph with a range of 460 miles. as a car, the transition has front-wheel drive with automotive style entry doors and plenty of cargo space. if the idea of flying to work suits you, you can become a sport pilot in as little as 20 hours of flight time through a special course. but the vehicle will run you an estimated 194,000 USD.

UPDATE: the ‘transition’ earned an exemption sunday from the federal aviation administration as a ‘light sport aircraft,’ meaning the US federal government is on track to legalize the first flying car.

after a few more sessions of audits and paperwork, the two-seated flying car can take to the skies under the command of sport pilots, a low-threshold classification. terrafugia can also commercially produce the aircraft without repeated burdensome federal airworthiness tests.

flying car industry executives say their products should enter the consumer market in the next decade.
