A $169126 (PS145,000), flying vehicle has been approved for takeoff.
The FAA rubber stamp has been given to the Samson Switchblade, the U.S. government's aviation authority, for flight testing.
After 14 years of development, Switchblade now conducts final high-speed taxi testing before flight testing.
Samson Sky in Redmond, Oregon says that 2100 people have reserved the vehicle. The DIY kit comes with it.
Each Switchblade Kit contains engine, transmission, avionics and interiors.
The Switchblade is a street-legal three-wheeler that you can keep in your garage.
