Switchblade Owners Brian Purdy, Ken Chatham II, and Ken Chatham Sr. talk with FAN

What is the Switchblade? Brian describes it as the first flying sports car, a new way of thinking about travel. As an Angel Flight pilot, Ken II plans to use the Switchblade to fly (and drive) people to the hospital.

These Owners describe the instrument panel, Motus V4 engine, and the wing-swing mechanism. Running a top driver education school, Ken and Ken feel that safety is of primary importance and they describe some of the Switchblade’s safety features, why they plan to utilize the Samson Builder Assist program, and why they have had no doubt that the Switchblade was going to become a reality, after first speaking with Switchblade designer Sam Bousfield at Oshkosh 2009.
