The Terrafugia Transition is a light sport plane with four wheels and foldable (可折叠的) wings. It can fly up through the sky just like a regular plane, then land on the ground, fold up its two wings and drive down the road at highway speeds.

It is 19 feet long and it can fly a distance of 460 miles, with a top speed of 115mph in the air and 60mph on the highway. According to early reports, the plane uses common gas—no rocket fuels (燃料) are necessary. It gets its power through the 100 horsepower four-stoke Rotax 912S engine.

It is about as wide as most normal cars except the folded gliders (折叠的助滑装置). The Terrafugia Transition can be put into most garages(车库) and drive normally on the road. A special code from a pilot’s license is needed to get the wings to unfold.
