Woburn, MA – June 21, 2016: Terrafugia is pleased to announce that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has approved our 2014 Petition for Exemption, allowing a vehicle in the Transition® street-legal airplane configuration to be certified as a Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) with a maximum takeoff weight of 1,800 pounds. This is a significant increase over the allowance received in 2010 which granted the Transition® a 1,430 pound weight limit, the same as currently imposed on amphibious LSA.
