Post by Elfot on Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:33 am

New York, NY & Woburn, MA – (April 2, 2012):

The Transition® Street-Legal Airplane is now a significant step closer to being a commercial reality.
The production prototype of the Transition® Street-Legal Airplane completed its successful first flight at Plattsburgh International Airport in Plattsburgh, NY on March 23, 2012.



The same vehicle has also successfully conducted initial drive and conversion testing, demonstrating the Transition’s capability to provide unmatched freedom, flexibility and fun in personal aviation.



Developed by Terrafugia, Inc., the Transition® is a two seat personal aircraft capable of driving on roads and highways, parking in a single car garage, and flying with unleaded automotive fuel.........

The anticipated base price is only $279,000 (roughly 210,000 euro).

Not too expensive for a vehicle with these capabilities, but you need a pilot's licence to drive it. hmmm
