Flying Cars – A Dream No More

Posted: November 19, 2007 in Tech

Terrafugia, Inc. is developing the Transition. The Transition is a roadable Light-Sport Aircraft that will be able to land at the airport, fold up its wings, and drive on the road.

The vehicle will have 550 lbs of usable cargo weight in a 20 cubic foot space, which can be divided up among people, bags or fuel. It has a 20 gallon fuel tank which consumes about 120 lbs of fuel. Its maximum range is 460 miles (400 nm) when operating at 75% power, which is required to sustain 115mph cruising speed. When in folded position, the vehicle measures just 6.75 feet high, by 7.5 feet wide, by 18.75 feet long.
