Terrafugia, a small, privately held company has recently gained FAA approval for its "flying car" or road-able aircraft named "The Transition". The car has been in the works for some time and the recent improvements to the vehicle's design bring it only about a year away from being available to customers and only a year away from fulfilling all kinds of fantasies. The Transition combines the unique convenience of being able to fold its wings with the ability to drive on any surface road in a modern personal airplane platform. The current model features a more car-like look, with traditional headlights and even a license plate holder. In accordance with the green phenomenon, its fuel economy is good and averages 35 miles per gallon on the road and about 490 miles per full tank in the air. The Transition will be sold to the public for a price of $194,000. Not a cheap price but hey, at least now you can live in your car and fly in it too.
