the Stoop: The Awesome Flying Car

Written by Ran

Wow this is truly a step in the right direction. Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-gee-ah) is a company made up of MIT trained Aeronautic Engineers and MBAs who have created the first flying car. Yep you read that correctly; I said a FLYING CAR. Now the car is not as hot as the flying Delorean that hovered like a Harrier Jet to take off, but who cares, it's a flying car.

Today, the FAA provided Terrafugia with a weight exemption which will allow them to keep all the much need automobile safety features, but allowing the plane portion to be classified as a Light, Sport Aircraft. By possessing this designation, an individual would be able to obtain a license after completing a 20 hour flight course and test.

Now this unique car/plane/dream machine runs off unleaded gas, can reach road speeds of 65mph and gets about 30 mpg on the road [for you fuel conscience drivers]. In the air it will reach speeds of 115 mph and fly about 450 miles. Now I wouldn't recommend trying to fly this car to E...you know how some people do on road trips lol...but hey...IT'S A FREAKING FLYING CAR.

Everyone who knows me, knows that I'm a bit of a techie. The mere fact that I'm seeing ingenuity at work gives me a ray of hope that not everyone in this country has rolled over and technologically died. The cool thing about this flying car is it can be converted from a plane to a car within 5-10 minutes. Yea it looks a little odd, but really does it matter if you're the one driving/flying this $190,000 dream machine? This could truly revolutionize the "daily commute".

Terrafugia...Thank you for being the coolest nerds in the world and I mean that in the sincerest way. Can't wait to get behind the wheel of one these SWE-E-E-E-E-E-T *in my Carter Pewterschmidt's voice* toys.
