Transition Roadable Aircraft also known as the “flying car” developed by Terrafugia Inc makes its auto show debut at the 2012 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS).

The combination aircraft and automobile has two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven like a car. The “flying car” can take off and land from more than 5,000 public U.S. airfields. Prices start at $279,000 and will be on sale by the end of the year.

“We selected the New York International Auto Show to continue the roll-out of the Transition® because of the value this show brings in terms of exposure to future owners, investors, and partners. The NYIAS is a venue from which we can show the first practical street-legal airplane to the world while meeting the people who will be part of its commercial success in the years to come. New York is the perfect place to accomplish all of this,” Terrafugia COO Anna Mracek Dietrich said in a press release.

The 2012 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) will be at Jacob Javits Convention Center 11th ave. between 34 & 40 Streets, Friday April 6th through Sunday April 15th, Monday – Saturday: 10am – 10pm (Sundays: 10am – 7pm).

On it’s first test flight, the Transition car plane flew at 1,400 feet for eight minutes using an automotive fuel.
