A prototype of what is being touted as the worlds first practical flying car took to the air for the first time this month, a milestone in a project started four years ago by students in MITs Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
At 7:40 a.m. on March 5, the winged car taxied down a runway in Plattsburgh, N.Y., took off, flew for 37 seconds and landed further down the runway — a maneuver it would repeat about a half dozen times over the next two days. In the coming months the company, a Woburn-based startup called Terrafugia, will test the plane in a series of ever-longer flights and a variety of maneuvers to learn about its handling characteristics.
