A sports car that turns into an airplane with the press of just one button is no longer a fantasy, but a reality.The Switchblade is emerging as a revolutionary mode of transportation that promises to combine the thrill of driving with the efficiency of flight.Samson Sky Switchblade is officially launched.At Grant Country International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington, Switchblade made its first flight, reaching an altitude of 150 m and a speed of 320 km/h.The first flight lasted approximately six minutes.

The two-seater can reach speeds of over 200 km/h in street mode with the wings and tail folded. In flight mode, it will be able to reach speeds of up to 322 km/h and gain altitude of up to 400 meters. The hybrid power system, running on regular 91 octane gasoline, provides a range of up to 805 km. The fuel tank capacity is quite large – 125 liters. The transition process from car to airplane will take about three minutes for the tail to extend and unfold and the wings to extend out from under the landing gear and lock into place. But the manufacturers promise that this will happen automatically.

*For takeoff you will need at least 335 meters of asphalt or runway. But still, this is an airplane that you can park in a regular garage, rather than paying for a hangar space, and it will be a pretty great way to get around.

The aircraft will be sold as an experimental/home-built aircraft, so the buyer will have to assemble it themselves, but the company says that they will have a Help Center with all the necessary tools where customers can assemble their personal aircraft under the supervision of specialists.

The company said the Switchblade has already received 2,300 reservations from 57 countries at an estimated starting price of US$170,000, highlighting the fact that there is definitely a market for truly roadworthy aircraft. This three-wheeled design qualifies as a motorcycle, greatly simplifying the accreditation process.
