Terrafugia’s mission is to create practical flying cars that enable a new dimension of personal freedom. Terrafugia 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.
With the guidance of our extensive advisory board, Terrafugia successfully designed, built, flew, and tested two iterations of our initial vehicle prototype, known as the Transition®, and continues to benefit from the experience – both technological and regulatory – gleamed from that program.
A Transportation Revolution
In response to rapid industry-wide technological progress, as well as increasing regulatory acceptance, Terrafugia unveiled a vehicle design with the potential to truly revolutionize the way we all get around: the TF-X™. A hybrid electric flying car with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities and computer-controlled flight, the TF-X™ will create a new dimension of personal mobility.
Research and Development
Terrafugia has completed conceptual design of the TF-XTM and built a scale prototype for wind tunnel testing. We have received permission from the FAA to conduct flight testing of an unmanned scale prototype and plan to develop and test a full-size unmanned prototype by 2018.
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.
