Terrafugia (Woburn, Mass.) will return for its eighth year as an exhibitor at the EAA AirVenture, at Wittman Regional Airport in Oskhosh, Wis., to be held July 29-Aug. 4, 2013. Terrafugia and EAA have announced that Terrafuiga's flying car concept, the Transition, will make its first airshow appearance as part of the "World's Greatest Aviation Celebration" this summer.

The Transition is scheduled to perfom immediately prior to the Night Airshow, with wheels up at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2013. The 20-minute demonstration just before sunset will feature conversion from driving to flying and back again, a flight demonstration, and a driving pass in front of the crowd.
