The purpose of this site is to contrast and compare these vehicles and to provide the latest information on each. It is an unbiased site that is not funded by any of the manufacturers.

Below is a summary of currently available carplanes, or carplanes that are expected to hit the market sometime in the next 5 years. There are 8 real competitors and I have ranked them from 1 (best) to 8 (worst) based on their relative overall attractiveness.
We have a new number one! Continued delays with the Terrafugia Transition has resulted in it slipping from its perennial number one position to third in our most recent rankings. The new number one is the currently available SkyRunner.
