when switching from ground to air mode.The report says RAI is combining proven technology in the areas of design, control,
materials and modern engines, with advances in computer technology and materials engineering. The Far West Bulletin declares

The RAI website at www.roadable.com
gave no details and merely confirmed it had a co-operative research and development agreement with the Navy.
In 2003 the RAI website was closed. However, Roadable Aircraft International was purchased by
Mundus Group in 2006.
