     Terrafugia flying car for future
    The flying car is ready for the future. There are many names of flying cars like a Rodable Aircraft plane, Dual-mode vehicle, Hybrid car plane, etc. In this century if we notice everywhere is a lot of vehicles running on the road. In which there are so many types of vehicle like a bike, car, buses, truck, jeeps, etc. With that, all 60-70% of people have their self private vehicle. In which so many people have a 2-3 vehicle for personal purposes like a bike, car, luxury, etc. That will be a big mistake made by human. Think about how much pollution gonna be made by vehicle. Pollution is not our topic, but  I wanna say to everyone please what you can do or whatever you can do for good environment please do it without any doubt. So With that all vehicles there are many types of transportation system like Air, water, ground, etc. In which ground transportation is rail, road, etc. And in water transportation, boat, ship, etc. And the last one is air transportation, which use is very less than another.

    So we see ground transportation is big and with that's all ground transportation takes or consume lots of ground portion or surface. In this situation, one day will come when there is a lack of land problem will come in front of us. So that's why we will need to start improving or increase our air transportation system. That's why humans will need a flying car.

    The history of flying car-

    • So guy's first innovations of the flying car start from 1917. So first-time Rodable car made by 'Curtiss'. Although the car can lift from the ground, but the car cannot achieve full flight. Because of that experiment goes failure.
    • After Curtiss in 1944 the car is made by 'Vultee'. His car name is 'ConvAirCar' which offered 1 hour of flight with the milages of 75 Km per gallon (1 gallon = 3.785411 liter). The plans makes for the market, but the car ended when the car crashed on his third trial of flight.
    • Then after all, in 1946 came from the 'Robert Fulton'. The name of the car is 'Airphibian'. It was the first roadable plane that is certified by the Civil Aeronautics Administration, the federal aviation administration (FAA). This hybrid car only takes 5 minutes to convert road mode to fly mode.
    • Avrocar is designed only for the purpose of military use. It is developed by with Canadian and British military.
    • In 1970 Aerocar design of 'Moulton Taylor'. It is the most successful car to pass all operations.

    Terrafugia- personal flying car:

    Terrafugia is founded by the 'Carl Dietrich', 'Anna Dietrich' and 'Samuel Schweighart' in 2016. The Flying Car is a Chinese owned Co. It is based in the United State is developing where a car called 'transition'. It is also known as 'TF-X'.
    The Flying Car is designed also for street-legal road vehicles which has folding ability to when the driver wants to flying mode, wings are taking the position of the unfold. Delivery of transition is expected in 2021-2022. Terrafugia's organization said previously the cost of the vehicle should be somewhere between $300000 and $400000. Gasoline is used as fuel of Terrafugia.

    Working of Terrafugia:

    When Terrafugias wings in folded mode or car mode, the car can travel up to speeds of 145 Kmph. And when Terrafugias wings in unfolded mode or flight mode, that time car can fly up to speeds of 185Kmph. Fuel can capacity is up to 800Kmph of unleaded gasoline. The interesting thing is car change in the plane time takes only 30 Sec. 
    Car when in drive mode it is controlled by normal steering. And in the flight mode arrangement of string settle in simple mechanism. Flying mode control is aerodynamic technology, which controls by steering. The engine power is directly provided to the propeller for flight through a carbon-fiber driveshaft (Carbon fiber is used in high-speed vehicle). After landing pilot activated electromagnetic wing folding system from inside cockpit. And then able to drive away.

    Dimension of Terrafugia:

    - Driving Mode dimensions:

    •  80” (2m) height.
    •  90” (2.3) wide.
    •  19’9” (6m) length.

    - Flying Mode dimensions:

    •  80” (2m) height.
    •  26’6”(8m) wingspan.
    •  19’9” (6m) long.

    Terrafugia Features:

    • 100 powers of HP Engine
    • Speeds are up to184 camp
    • The range of flight is 500 miles and the batteries are rechargeable by the engine.
    • Consuming just 7.85 liters of gasoline, 160 Km per flight.
    • 87-liter of gas tank.
    • Only Two-seater.
    • Rear-wheel drive.
    • Full vehicle Parachute for emergency.
    • Modern Glass Avionics.
    • Update safety systems include improved seat belts, Airbags.
    •  Increased visibility with three rearview cameras in both drive modes.

    Advantage of Terrafugia:

    • You can fly and drive in only a single-vehicle.
    • No need for special tracks to run or flight.
    • No more traffic jam OR Reduce land traffic problem.
    • It occupies the same place as compared to normal vehicles.
    • Shorter commute time.
    • Modernization in technology.
    • Private flying machine car.
    • Need a track above 500 m which is less than an airplane.

    Disadvantages of Terrafugia:

    • Complicated designing.
    • Limited market.
    • Landing problem.
    • Expensive.
    • Need a pilot license to operate.
    • Need an airport, to take off and land (legally).


    • The flying car Terrafugia concepts will require some more time to be in reality.
    • Readable plane design and development are feasible.
    • The cost of a readable plane plays a vital role in their success.
    •  It can be stored in the garage, like a normal car.
    • The success of roadable aircraft will end uncertain weather, rising costs.
    • In the future, all this technology will develop so much that buses and even trains will fly.
