Will the latest attempt at the ‘Flying Car’ put an end to traffic headaches?

April 10, 2012 by Darren Engineering, Manufacturing 0


How sweet would it be to soar ABOVE the traffic during your morning commute instead of kissing the bumper in front of you?

The promise of a flying car has been a staple of science fiction novels and kids’ cartoons, but there will soon be one available for your driveway by the end of the year.

The Terrafugia Transition, which looks like a chubby VW Beetle with wings, can transform from plane to car or vice-versa in less than a minute. The prototype for the “roadable aircraft” just passed all its flight and safety tests with flying colors.

The Flying Car has a $279,000 pricetag and there are about 100 of them on back order.

Bragging Rights: It was designed with SolidWorks, the 3D cousin of DraftSight, our professional-grade free 2D CAD product which you can download for $279,000 less!

What’s it like to get in the cockpit/driver’s seat?
