Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-gee-ah) intends to catalyze a revolution in personal mobility. Our vehicles bring a new level of safety, convenience, and freedom to personal transportation. The Transition® is the first step on the road to the practical flying car. A street-legal airplane that converts between flying and driving modes in under a minute, the Transition® integrates proven technology with innovative components such as our patented folding wing design. It gives the pilot the option to land and drive in bad weather, provides integrated ground transportation on both ends of the flight, and fits in a standard single car garage at home. The Transition® can fly in and out of over 5,000 public airports in the U.S. and is legal to drive on public roads and highways. It is the only light sport aircraft designed to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, and it is also equipped with a full-vehicle parachute for additional safety. Terrafugia is in the advanced stages of testing the Transition® in preparation for production. Terrafugia’s vision for the future is the TF-X™: a bold concept intended to lead the creation of a new industry and bring personal aviation into the mainstream. A four-seat, plug-in hybrid electric flying car with fly-by-wire vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities, the TF-X™ is designed to bring personal aviation to the world. The design will make use of the high power density and reliability of modern electric motors in combination with parallel power and control system architectures to achieve a higher level of safety than modern automobiles. The TF-X™ will provide true door-to-door transportation combined with the freedom of vertical takeoff and landing -- creating a new dimension of personal mobility. Terrafugia is derived from the Latin for “Escape the Earth”. We’re Driven to Fly.™
