Terrafugia, Inc., a game-changing aircraft company, announced today the first flight of its TransitionĀ® Roadable Aircraft Proof of Concept. Often referred to as a “flying car”, the TransitionĀ® is a two-seat aircraft designed to take off and land at local airports and drive on any road. Transforming from plane to car takes the pilot less than 30 seconds.

It will cruise up to 450 miles in the air, uses standard unleaded gasoline, and fits in a normal sized garage.

This is certainly one way to beat traffic jams.
