Transition Personal Air Vehicle: Possibly Your Next SUV


Update on a Post from May, 18, 2006:

MIT Superstar and recent Lemelson award winner, Carl Dietrich, and a couple of his best buddies want to sell you your next SUV. Oh, and did I mention it flies at around 140mph at 8,000 feet, gets about 30 mpg (highway and skyway) and fits in your garage.

Their company is called Terrafugia and their vehicle is called Transitions. They hope to have a prototype built by 2008. If interest is as high as they hope, they'll have production models available by 2009.

With a price tag around $150,000, this little personal aircraft might just make it as a commercial endeavor where so many others have failed...
