Terrafugia TF-X First Fully Autonomous Flying Car

Flying cars are just TWO years away: Terrafugia claims its TF-X will be ready to take to the skies by 2018. Traffic can be a real grind. For those travelling between work and home by car every day, the seemingly endless cycle of gas-brake-repeat at a snail’s pace can wear thin.




 
 
But commuters of the very-near future may be granted some respite by taking to the skies in a flying car.
The US company behind the concept vehicle TF-X is hoping a prototype will be ready to fly in just two years – and it will go on general sale within eight.

Range: 500 miles (800 km)

Cruise Speed: 200 mph (320 km/h)

Engine Fuel: Unleaded automotive gasoline

Electric Motor Pods: 1 MW of power

Dimensions: The TF-X™ will fit in a single car garage or standard parking space.

Takeoff and Landing: The TF-X™ will be able to take off and land vertically from a level clearing of at least 100 feet (30 meters) in diameter.

Certification: Flying the TF-X™ will require substantially less training time than a traditional pilot’s license or sport pilot certificate. Driving the TF-X™ will require a standard US driver’s license.
