When I first read the news about the latest flying car developments in February 2009, I was definitely excited. I love driving. I love flying (not that I fly a plane though). So what better way to combine both than to have a flying car!

There’s the Parajet Skycar from Parajet Paramotors, the M400 Skycar volantor from Moller International, and the Transition from Terrafugia.

On March 5th, 2009 the Terrafugia Transition achieved first flight at Plattsburgh International Airport off New York’s I-87, just one hour south of Montreal, Quebec.

Now, you can actually buy your very own Terrafugia Transition Roadable Aircraft, which could go into production next year (2010). The anticipated purchase price is US$194,000 with a US$10,000 airframe refundable deposit. I surely don’t have that money to spend, but just the idea that it is possible to get one soon, makes me happy about it.

A Light Sport Aircraft pilot license will be needed to drive/fly this dual-purpose vehicle. You can become a Sport Pilot in as little as 20 hours of flight time in their specific training course.

Who knows? Maybe someday I will buy one myself.
