Glenn Pew has posted an interesting video on the first test flight for the Transition, the “flying car” that’s currently causing a blogswarm. As a kid, I spent my summers at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Fly-In out in Rockford, Illinois. My dad was a pilot and he loved home-builts, restorations and prototypes. He would have flipped for the Transition!
My favorite quote about the Transition? “They spent months proving that it could drive. Earlier this month, with little fanfare, they proved it could fly.”

If you’re interested in learning more about the prototype, here’s a peek inside the cockpit from AVWeb.
