    Default Terrafugio flying car - who will be first in the DR?

    I wonder who the first will be in the DR to get on of these? AZB likes gadgets and it would speed up the trips between Santiago and Santo Domonigo.

    Other info I spotted was a release date in 2011 with a price about $200,000 US. Meet the Jetsons!! LOL

    this would be a great item for the drug traffickers; VERY popular for the D.R.

    its not like you will take off from the street. This idea has be around since the 60's and I have already seen a prototype in the 70's when I was a kid. You would need to comply with the FAA rules and have your pilot's license in check. The plane version doesn't seem to aerodynamically efficient and I doubt the speed will be there. The car version looks even worse. So I don't see this thing parked in the garages of many homes anytime soon.
    Nice try but its an old idea.
