Samson Switchblade moves toward launch of flying car

Samson Sky has announced the countdown continues toward the launch of a high-performance flying car as the Samson Switchblade nears its maiden flight, the company said.

Other flying cars, such as Terrafugia and Pal-V, have already flown, and are ramping up into production sometime in 2019. Initial production of the Switchblade is also slated to begin before the end of 2019, as the company reports having already invested in production molds for most of the larger carbon fiber parts of the vehicle.

The Switchblade flying sports car is a three wheel, street legal vehicle that you drive from your garage to a nearby local airport. Once there, the wings swing out and the tail extends in under 3 minutes. You then fly your registered aircraft directly to the destination – at up to 200 mph and 13,000 feet.
