Samson Sky announces new patent and orders for its Switchblade flying car

Samson Sky reports it has been granted another patent for its flying car, the Switchblade.

“This patent, for the wing-swing design, was granted by the European Union and brings the total number of patents held by the Oregon company to six, with more patents still in the works,” said the company in a press release.

Sam Bousfield, Samson CEO and designer of the Switchblade said: “Having these design patents on the wing-swing is a vital safeguard for Samson. Being able to retract the wings and tail into the vehicle, fully protecting them while driving, is key to what makes the Switchblade truly practical for everyday use. No other flying car has ever had that feature.”

Samson also reports having added over USD5.5 million to its order books in the last several weeks, with media coverage of the Switchblade’s maiden flight reaching a total potential audience of over 220 million people. “

According to the company, the Switchblade has demonstrated a maximum driving speed of 125+ mph (201 km/h) and has an estimated maximum flight speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). The engine powers the wheels on the ground and the propeller in the air. Samson’s flying sports car has a hybrid electric system, which uses unleaded auto gas rather than leaded aviation fuel. Owners can fuel up at any auto gas station.
