The FAA Has Cleared the World’s First Flying Car for Takeoff
Dreaming of flying cars might not be just a dream, that fantasy is one step closer to become a reality
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded Terrafugia a special certificate of Airworthiness for light sports aircraft. With this permission you can think of this type of transport for eventual use both in the air and on the street.
The two-seat flying car must meet FAA and National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety standards.
Standard features will need to include a Dynon Skyview avionics package, a BRS fuselage parachute, four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, airbags, a rigid carbon fiber safety cage that meets automotive standards, and folding wings that allow parking in a single-car garage.
It also has a luxurious interior, with leather seats. The board has a change that goes from Park to drive, and then to fly, to airplane mode. The car version will be powered by a hybrid-electric engine.
It is worth dreaming, and in this subject apparently dreams are close to being fulfilled.
