The Transition is essentially a two-seater car with wings added to the sides and a propeller drive. When driving on land, the wing is closed. At this time, the length of the car is 6.02m, the width is 2.3m, and the height is 1.98m. In addition to being relatively long, the width and height are no different from ordinary SUVs.
If the transition enters flight mode, the wings on both sides of the fuselage will be opened, and the wing span will reach 8m. After full speed start, it can be lifted off after a 518m slippery car. Its maximum speed in the air is 184km/h and the cruising speed is 160km/h. This car is also equipped with a rear view camera and a new parachute system, as well as “boost”. Mode that allows for a brief extra power during flight. The car weighs about 590kg and has a folding wing and a fixed landing gear that can fly up to about 3048m, with a cruising range of nearly 640km and consume about 19L of aviation gasoline per hour.
For safety reasons, the Transition is equipped with a range of safety equipment such as airbags, seat belts and dynamic electronic flight information systems. In case of an accident in flight, there is also a parachute escape. At present, this flying car has been tested in the United States for more than 500 hours without any malfunction.
