Terrafugia Transition: Flying Car of the Future

The idea of the flying car, transporting us all in congestion-free skies in a fraction of the time has, until recently, been nothing more than a sci-fi fantasy.

But three years ago a flying car called the Terrafugia Transition took to the skies for the first flight of an airborne car. Now the company behind it has launched a second version – the Terrafugia TF-X.

The Transition® brings a new level of freedom, flexibility, and fun to personal aviation by combining driving and flying in one state-of-the-art vehicle.

Glass cockpit avionics, carbon fiber construction, and innovative mechanisms make the Transition® easy and fun to fly, drive, and convert.

A steering wheel and gas and brake pedals on the ground make it familiar to drive while a stick and rudder pedals provide responsive control in flight.

By being able to land and drive, not only is the "last mile problem" solved but inclement weather will no longer stop your trip.

Running on premium unleaded automotive gasoline, the same engine powers the propeller in flight or the rear wheels on the ground.

Converting between flight and drive modes is comparable to putting down the top on your convertible and you can keep the Transition® at home in the garage: flying has never been so convenient!
