|The Flying Car will get real. A team at Terrafugia is about to a consumer vehicle that can take to the highways and the skies. The Transition($194,000) will go for sale by the end of 2009 for $194,000. The Transition with a pusher prop, four wheels and a pair of 10-foot-wide wings. It features designed to automotive crash safety standards, with an option for a full-vehicle parachute. The Transition is gas powered, can fly a range of about 450 miles. The first Terrafugia Transition is scheduled to take to the air next month. From the pictures, it looks so heavy, I feel it can not fly high and fast, but it is a good beginning. If you want to fly it, you will need a pilot's license to fly the Transition, but just a light sport license, which is significantly cheaper and easier to obtain.
