Flying Car Get-Set-Go for Take Off

Flying Car and Autonomous Flight Engineer Nanodegree

When I was young I was under the assumption that when I reached adulthood I would have my own flying car. My young mind had absolutely no doubts about it. After all, the science fiction movies and cartoons of the day always assured me that this was a forgone conclusion. The 21st century was going to arrive and give everyone the opportunity to fly the highways of the sky in style and comfort. All of us would be the pilots of our own destiny.

Now fast forward to the present. You can imagine the disappointment I experienced when the 21st century came and I was still rolling in the same old earth bound vehicles that my father and grandfather owned. Talk about having your dream deflated. Not only was there no flying cars to whisk me away to my local convenience store so I can pick up a fountain soda, but there was no prospect of any flying vehicle being developed anytime in the near future. Reality can really be a bummer sometimes.

Fortunately, my dreams of cruising the skies in a flying car have been revitalized thanks to a company called Terrafugia. This company has been developing their premier flying car, the Terrafugia Transition, since 2006 and it has been recently been cleared by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for road use. When I first heard about this vehicle I was pumped to say the least.

Terrafugia Transition

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Terrafugia Transition, let me give you a little background information on it. The Terrafugia Transition is light duty aircraft that can be driven on the roads like a car or flown like an airplane. When used as a car it can travel at speeds up to 65 MPH and can be fueled at your local gas station just like any other car. The real genius behind this vehicle is its ability to take to the skies easily and quickly. With just a push of a button, the retractable 26 foot wings unfold effectively transforming this car into an airplane that can fly at speeds up to 115 MPH. Sounds like a great concept to me.

But before you run out and try to buy one however, there is one caveat. This car costs about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. A little bit on the expensive side if you ask me, but definitely worth it. Now we can all hit the skies in a flying car. Just like what we were promised as children.
