Transition, Flying Car: From Dream to Reality

It's not quite Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but the new Terrafugia Flying Car, Transition, is no less cool.

SpaceBlog Alpha first wrote about the Transition in August 2006.

At that time there were about a half dozen other companies searching for the perfect flying car design. Today, there's another crop of a half dozen designers doing the same thing. Some much more successfully than others.
In fact, the bio-fuel powered Parajet Skycar recently traveled from London to Tombouctou in Mali to demonstrate its effectiveness as the ultimate sport utility vehicle.

It remains to be seen if any of these designs, plausible though they may be, will capture the public's imagination (and their disposable income) any better than the Glenn Curtiss Autoplane
