At the National Business Aviation Association Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAABACE) held Oct. 16–18, 2018 in Orlando, Florida, flying car company Terrafugia announced that it had down-selected to a single approach for its multi-modal passenger and cargo-carrying transportation system. The company was previously considering two approaches for its TF-2 eVTOL aircraft: one with separate lift and thrusting propellers and the other with tilting propellers. The company determined that an aircraft with separate thrusters would be faster to market than the much greater challenges of developing an electric “tiltrotor.”

  1. Hello,

    I have been searching about flying car or air mobility aircraft.

    I am a commerical Pilot with a Bachelor in an Aeronautical Science degree, and National Diploma in Engineering and technology. I would like to learn more about the flying car or air mobility aircraft. I have been searching about your company though and your achievement.

    Here in Oman, side by side with Oman government, I am preparing a proposal regarding this topic with different approaches.

    It would be my pleasure that both we can share knowledge and information about this topic.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,
    Yousuf Al-badi,

    1. Great! If you are interested in learning more about VTOL and developing proposals for eVTOL, you should join the Vertical Flight Society and take advantage of our resources: http://www.vtol.org/membership. Thanks!
