Terrafugia completes proof-of-concept flying car flight tests


Terrafugia reports that it successfully completed the first of four phases in its bid to produce a “roadable” sport light aircraft, the Transition. The company’s proof-of-concept aircraft completed 28 flights over several weeks starting with first flight on 5 March, with test pilots probing the handling, performance, take off and landing, stability and stall performance of the unique pusher aircraft that can be driven home from airport and stowed in a normal garage.  

The company says a Beta prototype is now being built, incorporating modifications learned in the first phase of the program. First delivery is set for 2011.
