Samson Switchblade - First Flying Sports Car to Take Off in 2018
|   Wednesday, March 14, 2018
US company Samson claims that its Switchblade model with V4 engine, displacing 1.6 liters, will be the first flying sports car in the world. It will be launched early next year with a price of 117,000 dollars.

Samson Motors, based in the state of Oregon, is the latest in the list of companies that promise to launch flying cars in the more or less distant future. Another US company, Terrafugia, announced last year a project to launch a flying car by 2024.
The Dutch at PAL-V were even more optimistic and announced that they will begin deliveries for the flying car Liberty in 2018.

The Americans claim that their car with three wheels and two seats is able to take off automatically at a speed of about 130 km/h, if the wings are open.
The maximum speed in the air was estimated at nearly 320 km/h, while the ground speed is to be at most 200 km/h.
According to Samson, 335 meters and 488 meters respectively are required for take-off and landing.

The car will only be able to fly from airports, since the length of the wings at the opening would prevent running on public roads.
The American company’s data shows that the V4 engine and its 192 hp is able to keep the Switchblade model in the air for about 700 kilometers if the 113-liter tank is full.

Customers who want to drive but also fly with Samson Switchblade must have both a driver's license and a pilot license.
