Flying cars, The future of urban mobility

Flying cars, The future of urban mobility




we have been hearing about flying taxes  for years now  they are touted as the future of urban  mobility  while we did not see a lot of action in the space last year possibly due to the corona virus pandemic things are finally zipping along german company volocopter performed the  first flight of its electrical  air taxi in france the flying taxi which  looks like a tiny helicopter took off and landed vertically over the  bourgeois airport with no passenger on  board  during a three minute flight  it flew a 500 meters route at speeds up  to 30 kilometers per hour  and soared 30 meters high along the  airfield  it has a luggage compartment and a  capacity of two people  on board the flying taxi service would  first  operate with a pilot license but the  flight would be fully automated  over a period of time it's quiet  it's safe and it offers a fantastic  experience and we work to really integrate this at  scale with other modes of transportation to make it affordable and accessible to  everyone everyone taking a taxi today shall be  able to use a volocopter on selected routes the objective is to  have a service in operation for olympic  games in the country  in 2024 customers will be able to book  their flights using a dedicated  smartphone  app for the service to be launched several pads or verti ports will have to be set up in  and around  paris eventually it's meant to enrich transportation offerings  in the french capital and other big  cities  in the world  flying cars will not only redefine how  we travel  but they will also change the face of  racing games  enter airspeeder another company that  has raced the bar  with its flying race car  this is the first time an electric  flying race car has taken flight in  australia  we always picture this as motorsport in  the sky so you're going to have  multiple vehicles in the air at the same  time that has been done with with  air races in the past but um with a  multicultural you have another level of  control  so you can't do this with a racing plane  what this means is we can get vehicles  within meters of each other  and create this kind of virtual force  field the mk3 airspeeder is a four meter long multicopter craft based on a formula one  car  it has a greater thrust to weight ratio than an  f-15 fighter jet the pilots will  remotely race on augmented reality sky  tracks  visible to an audience watching via a  digital stream  the company is aiming to hold races with  these futuristic vehicles  later in the year we don't know about  you  but we wouldn't mind watching an  electric flying car grand prix.
