A number of carplanes (aka: roadable aircraft, flying car) have recently appeared on the market or will be appearing soon. 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 10 real competitors and I have ranked them from 1 (best) to 10 (worst) based on their relative overall attractiveness.
The Butterfly Skycycle has disappeared. Their web site is gone and their phone is disconnected. Obviously, they are no longer on the list.
I have also removed the AT Black Knight Transformer from the list since progress on the aircraft seems to have completely stalled.
