The Switchblade flying sports car passed FAA inspection requirements for Experimental Category aircraft, and has begun flight testing.
The Switchblade is a three-wheel, street legal vehicle that you drive from your garage to a nearby local airport. Once there, the wings swing out and the tail extends in under 3 minutes. You then fly your registered aircraft directly to your destination – at up to 200 mph and 13,000 feet.
The Switchblade turns those grueling 10-hour regional trips into 3-1/2 hours door to door. Save 65% of your travel time so you have more time for the things that matter most to you.
High performance in both modes. Wings and tail fully protected on the ground. Advanced flight instruments and customizable digital dashboard. SkyBrid ™ electric drive system.
Flight testing is a sequence of steps leading to a full understanding of the flight qualities of the aircraft, and are approached best on a professional basis. Samson is using highly trained test pilots to walk us safely through this process, and the first steps begin with high speed taxi testing, as you can see in this video.
