On March 5, 2009, Massachusetts aviation company Terrafugia launched the first-ever successful flight of the Transition, a “roadable aircraft” a.k.a. flying car.
Run on ordinary gasoline and capable of 65 mph highway driving or 115 mph through the skies, the Transition is being marketed at a cool $194000 as a sport aircraft. It’s largest appeal is expected towards aviation enthusiasts who no longer will be deterred by incliment weather or plane-transport costs.
You can reserve your own from Terragugia (Latin for “escape from land”) for $10000. Flying over those morning traffic jams, however, will be priceless.
