Sitting in traffic blows. All of us have dreamed of hovering above it all to get to where we need to be in less time. The Transition by Terrafugia (Latin for “escape the earth”) is a street-legal airplane that is now a significant step closer to being a commercial reality. The two seat personal aircraft is capable of driving on roads and highways, parking in a single car garage, and flying with unleaded automotive fuel. While I don’t think you’ll be able to takeoff during a backup on the West Side Highway anytime soon, saying “Honey, can you pull the plane out of the garage?” will be nothing short of awesome.
