Future Flight: Drive And Fly? The Switchblade May Be The Answer

“It’s got a parachute, it has a dashboard that changes from flight gauges to driving gauges, and it looks as sleek as its name. The Samson Switchblade is a flying sports car concept developed by Sam Bousfield…

Its folding wing spar recently received its U.S. patent. The wing folds inside the car, giving the Switchblade its sleek, aerodynamic on-the-road appearance.

With wings out and tail up, it doesn’t look as dynamic, but Bousfield promises it’s the answer to those who want to both fly and drive safely and efficiently.”
