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 (by me) 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 (to me). DARPA has selected the Lockheed Martin team to prepare their full scale flying prototype, which is due by the end of 2015. Terrafugia is no longer giving a production date for the Transition although their current prototype appears to be advancing nicely.
