The I-Tec Maverick Flying Car, which looks like something out of Roadwarrior, is powered by a Subaru engine and has won the first certification from the Federal Aviation Administration for a flying car. Designed for saving the third world, the i-Tec, which stands for "indigenous people's technology and education center", is aimed at helping missionary pilots and jungle tribes become self-sufficient without having to abandon their way of life. Other uses include rescue missions, border patrol, pipeline monitoring, ranching and extreme sports.

Running on a 170-hp, 2.4 liter Subaru four-cylinder engine, the Maverick go 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds. It also had the ability to deploy a cloth wing on a 22-foot mast and takes flight. After years of testing, the FAA in September certified the Maverick as a "powered parachute". This is not quite the Terrafugia or other similar flying vehicles which are classified as roadworthy planes. Production models for the Maverick are estimated to be around $80,000.
