My First Flight in the Transition®

It was a moment I had been anticipating for most of my life: the first time I would take to the air in a machine that I had a hand in designing.  This flight, and the flights of the other 11 "2-person test subjects" marked a milestone in the history of Terrafugia -- the first time people other than our Chief Test Pilot, Phil Meteer, got the opportunity to fly a Transition®.

First Public Transition® Demonstrations: Driving and Flying at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013

Terrafugia made a dream come true at this year's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh!  The Transition® performed its first public demonstrations for the aviation community during the show.  Flown and driven by Phil Meteer, our Chief Test Pilot and Flight Test Coordinator, the Transition® showed the crowd what it's capable of on Monday evening.  The 20 minute demonstrations included flight maneuvers over show center, converting from airplane to car, and driving along the flight line.
