The flying car was developed by Terrafugia. Terrafugia’s mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-jee-ah) is derived from the Latin for 'Escape the Earth'". The company presented 'Transition', which is the world’s first practical flying car. A folding-wing, two-seat, roadable aircraft, 'Transition' is designed to fly like a typical Light Sports Aircraft in the air and drive like a typical car on the ground. It will run on premium unleaded automotive gasoline, fit in a standard construction single-car garage, and convert between flight and drive modes in under a minute. This model is able to drive both on ordinary motorways as a hybrid electric car, and, spreading its wings, fly at speeds up to 160 km/h.
