Today at Terrafugia: Steering System Calibration

One of the most important components in the development of the Transition® is the steering subsystem. This week, our engineers had the hood open on our prototype vehicle in order to recalibrate the steering system for the conforming prototype, D4. In an effort to reduce drag while in flight, the steering tie rods are being adjusted slightly in order to bring them in line with the upper arm of the suspension system.

On April 25, 2015, Terrafugia’s Transition® prototype vehicle will be on display in front of the MIT Museum on Front Street in Cambridge. The Cambridge Science Festival is presented by the MIT Museum in collaboration with the City of Cambridge, community organizations, schools, universities and businesses.  The Festival runs from April 17 through April 26.

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®.
