For the first time, the world will see the debut of the first practical flying car at the New York International Auto Show next month at the Jacob Javitz Center.

It's the Terrafugia's Transition Roadable Aircraft that has been developed after years of testing and engineering break throughs.

Developed by the privately held American corporation Terrafugia, the roadable aircraft has a 23-gallon gas tank and a range of 400 miles. It gives about 35 mpg on the road and burns roughly 5 gallons of gas per hour when it is at cruising speed in the air.

"We selected the New York International Auto Show to continue the roll-out of the Transition because of the value this show brings in terms of exposure to future owners, investors, and partners. The NYIAS is a venue from which we can show the first practical street-legal airplane to the world while meeting the people who will be part of its commercial success in the years to come.  New York is the perfect place to accomplish all of this," said Anna Mracek Dietrich, COO of Terrafugia.

The Terrafugia has currently received about 100 orders with an anticipated base price of $279,000.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Terrafugia spokesperson Steve Moscaritolo mentioned that some of those orders come from people who want it for the "new toy" aspect, but the company has also taken orders from people who commute somewhere each weekend, or almost every day, and want to avoid parking headaches and security lines at the airport.
