Flying Cars will be the future of city travel and Uber says they will fill the skies above you by 2020. The major aviation players have embarked into this concept of Air-taxi and Uber wants to launch them over major metropolitan cities including Dubai, Dallas and Los Angeles.
The Bell helicopters displayed its version of flying cars at CES2018 in Las Vegas. The concept Bell Air-Taxi is a egg-shaped pod with four seats and room for luggage will hoist you on a vertical takeoff and landing vehicle. The Bell joins Uber to make this concept into a workable model in which the battery powered flying taxis are expected to travel at 150 miles per hour between the helipads on the roof top buildings. The aim is the complete one way travel well under six minutes that would have taken more than an hour on the road.
The self flying days may take years to come but the flying taxis are not far a distance. The Air traffic, safety, security and Air regulations will defy the speedy implementation of this concept.
