FAA approves flying car test flights in US airspace
The US Federal Aviation Administration has approved test flights for Terrafugia’s TF-X flying car. To take advantage of the license given by the FAA, the company needs to inform the authorities when the tests will be done, as to avoid any accidents.
At first, the tests will be done in an unmanned prototype 10 times smaller than the actual vehicle and will fly at a maximum altitude of ۱۲۰ meters, at speeds up to 160 km/h. It is expected that the final version of the car will be much faster than this prototype, exceeding 320 km/h with a flight range of over 800 km.
