I think it's pretty safe to say that people around the world have dreamt about flying vehicles of one kind or another ever since the first cars rolled off the assembly line. The latest company to take a stab at turning fantasy into reality? Terrafugia.
Terrafugia's 'street legal' airplane has successfully taken its first flight, bringing the prospect of a flying car a big step closer.
Flying cars have been the stuff of dreams for decades, and thus far, remains limited to the realm of science fiction.
The Terrafugia flying car is now legal for use on the roads, following a grant of special exemptions by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted initial approval for a "roadable aircraft" known as the Transition.
