“Transition” – First Flying Car That Can Be Driven Both On The Road And In The Skies, May Go On Sale In 2015

by Bharath ChowdaryOctober 14, 2013
From years, we are much aware of the concept “Flying Cars” as several airplane and motor vehicle companies have been severely working on this concept to bring them into reality. Taking a step forward into the future world, Massachusetts-based firm “Terrafugia” ( Which means “Escape the Earth”), designed a Flying-Car named “Transition” which can be driven both on the road and in the skies and will go on sale in 2015. And yes, it can take off vertically in traffic-jam.                                                                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                                                                                        It’s designed for pilots who want to be able to drive their planes home instead of parking them at the airport. The Flying car “Transition” is partly sedan, partly private jet with two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so that it can be driven like a car, will be on sale in less than two years.  

                                                                                                                                                                                                          The release of the “Transition” is a prototype for another car-plane hybrid that is designed to be used by the masses, called the TF-X.  The “flying car for the masses” will not require an operator with a pilot’s license since it will take off, fly, and land autonomously. The operator only needs to input a program that tells the vehicle where to go. Dietrich said that most planes in the present already have a sophisticated autopilot program. 

In a Reuters video report, CEO Carl Dietrich said that ” We do want to create a flying car that can be used by a much broader segment of the population than just the pilot communities today. These vehicles that need to basically be able to fly themselves need to know where every other aircraft is in the air space, they need to know where the weather fronts are that they need to avoid, they need to know restricted airspace pops up, so they need to be tied in to basically a data network.”
