It’s part car, part aircraft. The Terrafugia Transition is a light sport aircraft which folds up into a car that will fit in a standard garage. The Transition cruises at 100 knots with a ranplane-persp-midge of 500 nautical miles (NM). The Proven 100 hp Rotax 912S engine runs off unleaded fuel with a fuel burn of 5 gallons per hour in the air.

On the ground, the Transition’s wings fold up and the car is front wheel drive with a top speed of 65 mph and a fuel burn of 30 mpg.



The two seat aircraft/vehicle recently completed a number of high speed taxi tests and is pushing for the first flight test by March. The Transition required 2,500 feet of runway to takeoff and is scheduled for delivery in 2010.
