The Federal Aviation Administration is categorizing the vehicle as a light sport aircraft, and presumably you’d have to have both your pilot’s license as well as your driver’s license to operate one of these guys. With the first “road” test behind them, the Transition will now go through a few rigorous years of prototyping, building, testing, and certifying, with 2011 as the projected roll-out date. Having your own plane to drive you to work won’t be cheap though; the estimated sticker price is $200,000. Which would still be cheaper than lifetime first class airplane tickets.
