According to feiauto newspaper, the world's first flying car that can take off at 100mph and fly at an altitude of 10,000 feet has been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. The flying car comes from Terrafugia. The wings are retractable and foldable and can be converted from land to air within one minute. The company was acquired by Geely in 2017.Terrafugia announced this week that they have reached a milestone in bringing the Transition road-flying aircraft to market. The Federal Aviation Administration granted the FAA Special Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) Airworthiness Certificate for Terrafugia’s Transition aircraft. The flying car is a combination of a two-seater aircraft and a car, and its design complies with FAA and NHTSA safety standards.
The vehicle (and also an airplane) awarded with the LSA certificate means that it can now fly legally, and represents the initial version of the Transition road vehicle. Initially, Terrafugia will manufacture and sell a Transition version called a flight-only version. The company promised to continue to evolve the piloting part of the aircraft design in order to achieve amphibious flight in the sky and local roads by 2022. It is understood that the flight-only version initially sold will be able to drive on highways, and only need to clear other regulatory obstacles. The fact that Geely ’s flying cars obtained the airworthiness certificate this time also proves the possibility of mass production of flying cars. In the future, more car companies may join the development of flying cars. Perhaps in the near future, we will be able to see the scene of flying cars driving in the air.（图文仅供参考/飞行汽车 www.feiauto.com）
