SWITCHBLADE® FLYING SPORTS CAR
Welcome to the Future
Artists dream the future, and that future is filled with flying cars. If you share that dream, the Switchblade® was designed for 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. Welcome to the Future!
The Switchblade ushers in a new era of mobility
See the world from a different perspective in flight or drop down and drive to explore something up close. You decide how and when YOU want to travel.
A vehicle for your lifestyle
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.
We make it easy
Classified as an Experimental Category aircraft, owners are required to build 51% of the vehicle. This process is simplified using Samson’s trained staff to educate, guide, and speed the build progress immensely. You have pride of accomplishment but don’t have to say how much help you got!
Your own personal time machine
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.
