The First Flying Cars

TECHNOLOGY NEWS – The first flying cars are set to go on sale to the public as early as 2015. Terrafugia has announced its Transition design, which is part sedan, part private jet with two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car, will be on sale in less than two years. The Massachusetts-based firm has also unveiled plans for a TF-X model that will be small enough to fit in a garage, and won’t need a runway to take off.

UPDATE

AirCar, a dual-mode car-aircraft vehicle moved closer to production this week, fulfilling a key development milestone in a 35-minute flight from the international airport in Nitra to the international airport in Bratislava on June 28th, 2021.

AFRIKAANS – Die eerste vlieënde motors kan so vroeg as 2015 beskikbaar wees. Terrafugia het aangekondig dat hul oorskakel-ontwerp half sedan en half persoonlike vliegtuig is, met twee sitplekke, vier wiele en vlerke wat kan opvou sodat dit soos ‘n motorvoertuig bestuur kan word, binne die volgende twee jaar beskikbaar sal wees.

Die maatskappy wat in Massachusetts in die VSA geleë is, het hul planne vir die TF-X model, wat klein genoeg is om in ‘n motorhuis in te pas, bekend gemaak. Die voertuig benodig nie ‘n aanloopbaan om op te styg nie.
