The short answer, according to Gersh is, “yes.” Since vehicle safety standards are federal standards, Terrafugia was able to confirm with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the Transition will indeed be street legal, and it will have such safety features as airbags to make it so. Emissions are a foggier subject. Because they are governed by both federal and state regulators, it’s harder to say for sure here. Gersh does point out that Terrafugia has gotten preliminary approval from all 50 states for the vehicle. Probably more importantly, the EPA has come out and said, according to Gersh, that the Transition is an airplane for purposes of emissions and the Clean Air act, meaning the Transition, just like your Bonanza, is exempt from the law's provisions.
