About Terrafugia

Terrafugia’s mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. Terrafugia (ter-ra-FOO-jee-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.

The Transition®

The Transition® is the world’s first practical flying car. It offers the convenience of driving and the speed of flight, and will incorporate autonomous technologies that will make the Transition® safer than any other small aircraft in the sky. Terrafugia has already developed and flown two full-scale prototypes, and has received all of the special legal approvals necessary to bring the Transition® to market in the US.

Vision for the Future

Terrafugia’s vision for the future is the TF-X™: a mass-market flying car with the potential to revolutionize the way we all get around. An all-electric vehicle with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities and computer-controlled flight, the TF-X™ is the flying car of the future. Terrafugia’s product development roadmap lays the groundwork for achieving this vision through a series of realistic steps over the coming decades.

Research and Development

Terrafugia is now completing final production vehicle design and testing for the Transition® and preparing to deliver within three years. The Transition® has received all of the special legal considerations necessary to enter the US market, 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.
