DREAM is already a reality. Yes, as we have seen in science fiction films of the Fifth Element
starring actor Bruce Willis. In the film we see flying cars moving around in between the buildings of skyscrapers.
Beginning in 2009, the car flying (flying car) called Transition TM has started to be sold freely. This car has two capabilities, namely can fly and can walk on the road. So the car is the work of Carl Dietrich was more like a driveable airplane.
A series of tests to finalize this draft was almost completed. Stability testing began flying to test resistance to the gravitational pressure when used on the highway, has passed.
Terrafugia Inc.. as licensees, has won permission from the two transportation agencies in the U.S., namely from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for permission to fly and from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for permission to walk on land.
Final stage of the experiment will be conducted Terrafugia Transition early next year, before the counter. While launching the free market, is the end of 2009. Reportedly, the price will be set for each unit ranged flying car is 194 thousand U.S. dollars or approximately USD 1.9 billion. Enthusiasts can order it from now on.
In principle, Terrafugia Transition is a small plane with four wheels, which can be folded wings keeempat. So, after the broadcast, the driver can immediately take him off the road and directly parking in garage.
But this car is still considered immature, especially if trapped traffic density. Because Transition does not have drivers or jet engine launcher for vertical takeoff. As the nature of the aircraft in general, Transition is a miniature aircraft that require runway to take off.
TM Transition wing will open when flying and wings can be folded as a regular car that can be stored in the garage the car. Cars that can be ridden by two people and capable of carrying cargo weighing 45 kg. Transition has a weight of 1320 lbs (598, 7 kg) and capable of flying at a maximum speed of 130 mph at an altitude of 1500 feet (457 meters).
There are actually flying car concept advanced by Paul Moller in California. Flying car (skycar) Moller design can take off and land vertically or vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL). VTOL model was also developed by Israel's Urban Aeronautics Ltd. with Macro Industries in Alabama, which SkyRider X2R.
Another type of flying car is made by Milner Motors AirCar, as he had been exhibited at the "108th New York International Show" at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The rear wing features a giant AirCar. In a few seconds, long wing can be folded and shaped box covered two propellers in the rear.
AirCar can fly as high as 25 thousand feet (7620 meters) with speeds up to 200 miles (321.8 km) per hour. In addition to diesel engine-powered 40-horsepower, AirCar has two booster dual propellers measuring 28 inches.
Flying car weighing 1.5 tonnes was a 1609 km cruise capability. The driver (or pilot) using a traditional steering wheel, like on a car. The price of this car is more expensive than TransitionTM, which reached 250 thousand pounds or approximately USD 4.5 billion, and began to be marketed starting in 2010.
Well, for you who have long dreamed of having a private plane, maybe can start saving from now
so that in due course, a flying car in the garage can nangkring your car. Oh yes, do not forget to take care of a driver's license and a license to fly at once.
