    Back to the Future fanatics, rejoice: A Massachusetts-based aircraft manufacturer is getting ready to sell its flying car (no, it’s not a DeLorean). Terrafugia, a 4-year-old company that specializes in making light sport aircrafts, will unveil its dual-purpose vehicle, aptly named the Transition, at July’s Experimental Aircraft Association Convention is Oshkosh, Wis. It hopes to start delivering the futuristic transport in 2011.

    The car-plane hybrid has a steering wheel, front-wheel drive and a gas and brake pedal for driving. It has a back propeller, control stick and rubber pedal for when it’s up in the air. The automated, electromagnetic wings retract into the vehicle when you’re ready to drive from the runway to your house. Items such as airbags, an energy absorbing crumple zone and a protective safety cage were added for safety. According to Terrafugia, the Transition transforms into a road-ready automobile in just 30 seconds.

    Oh goody, what now, texting while flying?

    Just picture the typical driver on the Beltway during rush hour only this time at an altitude of 2000 feet and the added excitement of up and down added as available directions for wandering off course.

    What fun.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.
