Is A ‘Flying Taxi’ Going To Be A Thing In The Near Future?


I’m not kidding with that headline, I do mean it! There is a good chance for you to be able to ride an air taxi in the coming years! Don’t believe me? Well, it’s understandable but the other thing which too is highly understandable is the technological advancement and the innovative ideas that people are coming up with.

 Uber and Hyundai have joined hands for making this dream come true where people will soon be riding in the air in some other vehicle than just the expensive airplanes! The idea itself was revealed at the starting of 2020 in the Consumer Electronics Show which was held in Las Vegas. Uber has trusted Hyundai with this concept where they aim to come up with Uber Air Vehicles which sure will give an unforeseen boost to the aerospace industry. The S-A1 is planned to have a speed limit up to 180mph (290km/hr), an altitude of around 1,000- 2,000 feet which is basically 300 to 600m above the ground, with a potential to trip up to 60 miles/ 100km. Of course, the vehicle will have propellers and a mechanism fit to reduce the noise inside the vehicle as much as possible. The idea may seem like the plot of some sci-fi movie but chances are that it will soon be a reality!

How Far Do You Think We Are With Air Taxis? Well, Not Much!

On the other hand, the Urban-Air Port is also on its way. The initiative has been selected by a government program where they aim to develop zero-emission flying, the concept has gained a whopping amount of 1.2 million pounds as a grad for help in funding the temporary installation of the airport in Coventry city Center, and for this project, and Hyundai has joined hands with a UK start-up. I mean, with Air-taxi on its way, it’s high time that we arrange an Air-port for them as well, right?

How Far Do You Think We Are With Air Taxis? Well, Not Much!

 The entire idea is surely a major step which will for sure become a revolutionary point for the transportation services around the globe! All we have to do is wait for these vehicles to function and soon the taxi rides will be way more interesting!
