In this regard, we require the protection of commercial aviation, the ease and suppleness of a car and the liberty of the open sky.

We necessitate such a novel industry that may provide safety of personal aviation that must be as simple as driving your car. In short, we need a practical flying car. Terrafugia is the company that highlighted this important need of human beings and aims to direct the formation of a new flying car that will assist the people to get this new element of private freedom. the slogan of Terrafugia in this regard is “We are Driven to Fly”.

The most surprising thing for the people about this flying car is its little engine. In 1920, Henry Ford tried to make a flying Flivver. Terrafugia is the latest modification of this previous struggle. In the recent past, many models were tried to fly but could not be succeeded. They claimed that Elon Musk is the man who could accomplish the task of a flying car thanks to his history reveals of creating rocket ships. Therefore, for that man, this task is also not like a rocket science. The sole lacking of this flying cars is that it still cannot become a commercial creation.
