Terrafugia Inc., developers of the Transition "roadable vehicle," will display a non-operational model at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2008. The two-place plane, which will meet light-sport aircraft (LSA) standards, is anticipated to have a top speed of about 85 mph on the road and a cruising speed of 100 kts (115 mph) in the air. It will be powered by a Rotax 912 engine and priced at $148,000.

Carl and Anna Dietrich, the MIT graduates who created the flying car, displayed the mockup and conducted a folding wing demonstration at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo in Sebring in January. Flight-testing is on target to begin before the end of the year, with the first deliveries anticipated in late 2009. For more information, visit www.terrafugia.com.

The 56th annual edition of the EAA fly-in convention will be held July 28-August 3 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.
