Minnesota has passed a bill allowing roadable aircraft such as switchblades to use state roads and highways. This legislative improvement is a huge support for roadable aircraft manufacturer companies like Samson Sky, who made the Switchblade. Even though, these vehicles can operate as airplanes and cars, it is prohibited to take off and landing on public roads unless there is an emergency. You need to have a driving licence to drive it on public roads. Addition to that, you need a private pilot license to fly it from an airport.
