Terrafugia ‘flying car’ completes initial flight testing

From Flightglobal:

Light aircraft developer Terrafugia has completed flight-testing of its proof-of-concept aircraft, the Transition, three months after the two-seat light sport aircraft took to the skies for the first time.

The “roadable” aircraft – dubbed the Flying Car – made 29 flights, says Woburn, Massachusetts-based Terrafugia “and has now completed the first of a four-stage process to bring the Transition into production”.

The second phase of development is under way, with work on the beta prototype already in progress. First deliveries are earmarked for 2011.
