Move Over George Jetson, Flying Cars Are Coming To Minnesota Roads And Skies!

ST. PAUL, MN – Minnesota is paving the way for a revolutionary change in transportation with the recent passage of a groundbreaking law that includes provisions for flying cars, also known as roadable aircraft. This bipartisan transportation bill package, signed into law by Governor Tim Walz, marks a significant step towards the integration of flying cars into our daily lives.

Is this what Minnesota’s future will look like?

🛣️ Driving on the Ground, Flying in the Sky

The new legislation allows roadable aircraft to be registered in the state, granting them permission to use Minnesota’s roads and highways. However, these vehicles must adhere to the same rules as other vehicles while driving on public roads. Taking off from or landing on public roads is strictly prohibited, except in emergency situations, as per existing aircraft regulations.

🌎 Minnesota Joins New Hampshire in Embracing Flying Cars

Minnesota is not alone in its efforts to accommodate flying cars. In 2020, New Hampshire became the first state to pass legislation for the registration of roadable aircraft, referred to as the “Jetson Bill.” Both states have received input from various flying car companies, including Samson Sky, Terrafugia, and PAL-V, demonstrating the growing interest and collaboration between the industry and lawmakers.

With its reasonable price and high performance in both driving and flying modes, the Switchblade has garnered reservations from over 50 countries worldwide.

With a range of up to 500 miles on a single tank of gas, the Switchblade and other flying cars have the potential to transform the way we travel, making long-distance trips more efficient and convenient than ever before.
