The Transition Car-Plane: Not a Delorean, But It Flies By Bryce Longton
March 20, 2009
Move over hybrids -- the Transition is here. Half car, half plane, this "roadable aircraft" is 19 feet long and 6 feet 9 inches high, with an expandable wingspan of 27 feet.

It runs on regular unleaded gas for both on-ground and in-air travel, cruising at highway speeds on land and upwards of 115 miles per hour in the air.
.
The two-seater car-slash-plane had its maiden voyage March 5 at the Plattsburgh International Airport in New York, with a retired US Air Force Reserve colonel in the pilot's seat. Video after the jump.
.
The Federal Aviation Administration is categorizing the vehicle as a light sport aircraft, and presumably you’d have to have both your pilot’s license as well as your driver’s license to operate one of these guys.
.
With the first “road” test behind them, the Transition will now go through a few rigorous years of prototyping, building, testing, and certifying, with 2011 as the projected roll-out date.
.
Having your own plane to drive you to work won’t be cheap though; the estimated sticker price is $200,000. Which would still be cheaper than lifetime first class airplane tickets.
