Flying Cars are coming!

Der Spruch „Dude, where is my flying car“ hat 2009 ausgedient, die Firma Terrafugia aus Boston beginnt noch in diesem Jahr Testflüge und will die Teile 2010 auf den Markt bringen.

A Boston-area company plans to begin flight tests this year of a two-seater airplane that moonlights as a car.

The aptly named Transition takes a stab at bridging the gap between automobiles and airplanes. Some people call it a flying car. The company designing and selling the vehicle prefers the term "roadable aircraft."

Such a machine would be practical, cheap to buy and maintain and could easily be the answer to the demand for a “Model T” helicopter.
