About Terrafugia

Terrafugia’s mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-gee-ah) is derived from the Latin for "Escape the Earth". We’re Driven to Fly.™

A World-Class Team

Five award-winning MIT graduates founded Terrafugia in 2006. Today, Terrafugia’s team of experienced engineers, designers, certification experts, and business professionals combines aviation and automotive expertise in pursuit of our common vision for the future of personal transportation.

Strong Roots

With the guidance of our extensive advisory board, Terrafugia successfully designed, built, flew, and tested two iterations of our initial vehicle prototype, known as the Transition®, and continues to benefit from the experience – both technological and regulatory – gleaned from that program.

A Transportation Revolution

In response to rapid industry-wide technological progress, as well as increasing regulatory acceptance, Terrafugia unveiled a vehicle design with the potential to truly revolutionize the way we all get around: the TF-X™. A hybrid electric flying car with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities and computer-controlled flight, the TF-X™ will create a new dimension of personal mobility.

Research and Development

Terrafugia is now completing the design for a final Transition® prototype and preparing to enter into production in 2-3 years. The Transition® has received all of the special legal considerations necessary to enter the market in the US, including four exemptions from NHTSA and two exemptions from the FAA.

We are Terrafugia

We intend to revolutionize transportation and create a new dimension of personal freedom for us all. We believe the future is within our reach, and we are building it, today.
