Look, up in the sky - it's a bird, it's a plane, wait, it's the world's first flying car! Talk about a new dimension of personal freedom, imagine driving out of your garage, down the road to an appropriate space and taking off in your own flying car! The stuff movies are made of is here for real, and one of our own Massachusetts companies, Terrafugia of Woburn, is revolutionizing transportation forever with the TF - X flying car, whose logo is Driven To Fly, and that's exactly what you'll do!

It's flight is computer controlled, meaning all you have to do is tell it where you want to go, like you do now instructing Serie. The TF - X will fly you with twin electric motor pods that look something like the rotors of a drone. As you lift off like a helicopter, a 300 hp engine kicks in, that also automatically recharges the batteries, as your flying car is propelled at a cruising speed of about 200 mph and a range of 500 miles. And when you arrive at your destination, the computer controlled vehicle softly lands you safely!

The Terrafugia website says the TF - X will be ready in about 8 - 12 years, but that right now deposits are being accepted to reserve your flying car. The price will be about that of a high-end luxury car. Operating the TF - X should be statistically safer than driving a modern automobile and that it will be equipped with a backup full-vehicle parachute system which can be activated by the operator in an emergency. If the operator become unresponsive, the TF - X would automatically implement an emergency auto landing at the nearest airport.

In seconds, from an airplane to a car again! And created right up the road or runway.
