Terrafugia (Woburn, Mass.) returned for its eighth year as an exhibitor at EAA AirVenture, held July 29-Aug. 4 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wis. The company marked the event with the first flight of its “roadable aircraft” at an air show. The Transition took wing as part of the “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration” with a flight demo at 3:40 p.m. on Monday, July 29. More demos followed later in the week, as Terrafugia demonstrated the craft’s ability to convert from driving to flying configuration and back again, and inluded a driving pass in front of the crowd.

Terrafugia — Latin for “escape the earth” — is a growing aerospace company founded by pilots and engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, Cambridge, Mass.) and is supported by a network of advisors and investors. Terrafugia was founded and began work on the Transtition in 2006. That summer the company launched publicly at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, where it met its first angel investors and received the first refundable deposits for the Transition.
