Flying Car finally is real!!
Weird-looking cars are a dime a dozen. Far less common are weird-looking
cars that can also fly AND have approval from the Federal Aviation
Administration. Indeed, as far as we know, there's only one of those
babies: The Terrafugia Transition
Amazing Helicopter Flying, Car Chase
This video exposes the low level helicopter flying done to chase cars for
the amazing footage you may see in a film or on TV. It's real life Grand
Theft Auto, no CGI, no fake stuff!
The truck I am in is a real real bone shaker, it was hauling a full size
trailer and that chopper comes very close to the trailer when passing. I
never felt easy about how close it was to the truck.
Has to be some of the most impressive flying I have seen, luckily I grabbed
some good video of the amazing low level flying. Pilot Gary Ticehurst.
You can see the work Gary did via this link.
Sadly Gary passed away in a Helicopter crash in 2011.
This is a Nissan car commercial from the late 90's, and the director Mr
Peter Cherry is recreating a scene from the film 'The Deer Hunter' where a
car does a risky overtaking move on a truck leaving an industrial site.

wont let me change the music so watch the other one. :)
Woburn, MA June 3, 2009: Terrafugia, Inc. has successfully completed the
flight testing program designed for its Transition Roadable Aircraft Proof
of Concept. Having been dubbed The Flying Car, the Transition completed its
historic first flight on March 5, 2009 with 27 additional flights completed
over the next several weeks.
The successful completion of flight-testing with the Proof of Concept
concludes the first stage of a four stage process to bring the Transition
into production. Work is underway on Stage 2, the Beta Prototype. First
delivery is expected in 2011.
The Proof of Concept vehicle is the first and only Transition to be built
thus far. It has now achieved its goals by demonstrating driving, flying,
and automated transformation between the two in one integrated aircraft.
The flights conducted a plan set specifically for the Transition:
characteristics such as handling, performance, and take-off and landing,
stability and stall were evaluated. B-Roll footage is available of
representative flights. The flight-testing program demonstrated the safety
of the vehicle in the air while identifying modifications that will be
incorporated into the next Transition model to be built, the Beta
Test Pilot Colonel (Retired) Phil Meteer had a positive review of flying
the POC: I would like to keep flying this Proof of Concept vehicle, but it
makes sense to move on to the Beta Prototype.
Categorized as a Light Sport Aircraft, the Transition requires a Sport
Pilot certificate to fly. It is a two-seat aircraft designed to take off
and land at local airports and drive on any road. Transforming from plane
to car takes the pilot less than 30 seconds. The Transition will cruise up
to 450 miles at over 115 mph, will drive at highway speeds on the road, and
fits in a standard household garage. The vehicle has front wheel drive on
the road and a propeller for flight. Both modes are powered by unleaded
automotive gasoline. By giving pilots a convenient ground transportation
option, the Transition reduces the cost, inconvenience, and weather
sensitivity of personal aviation. It also increases safety by incorporating
automotive crash structures and allowing pilots to drive under bad weather.
Refundable airframe reservations are currently being accepted.
Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-gee-ah), based in Woburn, MA, is comprised of a team
of award-winning engineers who have been advancing the state of personal
aircraft since 2006. Founded by five pilots who are graduates of MIT and
supported by a world-class network of advisors and private investors,
Terrafugias mission is the innovative expansion of personal mobility.
"Terrafugia" is Latin for "escape from land."
