Scientific American Features Switchblade Flying Car

“Occupants would sit in the aerodynamic Switchblade side by side in leather seats and climate-controlled luxury, behind an aggressively angled nose…

On solid ground, the wings would swing into clamshell compartments, protected by a steel keel.

Sexy design and the promise of air–ground transport have kept alive dreams of a flying vehicle in every garage. Ultimately, the Switchblade will succeed where others have failed, Bousfield believes, because it will morph so easily between transportation mediums.

Compared with its chief flying competitors, however… it appears to be the most practical air–ground hybrid.

Bousfield… like many a pioneer before him… is pushing onward and upward. And after that, the rest could possibly be personal transportation history.”
