A flying car could be put on the market

Samson Sky ‘s Switchblade has been in production for 14 years and could now undergo another round of testing.

On July 15th, the Federal Aviation Administration revealed that the vehicle is built in Oregon and will soon undergo new tests. If all is successful, the flying car could be put on the market within a few weeks.

This Ferrari red car offers all the amenities of a luxury car, including a hybrid electric drive system. When it’s time to land, the wings unfold on the sides.

For the curious, the car can accommodate two passengers. It can fly at an altitude of 16,000 feet and has a cruising speed of 258 kilometers. As far as insurance is concerned, the flying car has not been created yet.

Obviously, the flying car will not be sold on the standard car market, but rather on the “luxury” side at a cost of $170,000.

Samson Sky ‘s Switchblade is trying to catch up with the AirCar, which already has a few successful tests. Other manufacturers are also in the running. Cadillac unveiled its own airplane car at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in the past.

Another automaker, Porsche, has partnered in 2019 with aircraft manufacturer Boeing to launch its own prototype.
