Uber Is Developing A “Flying Taxi”

Uber reveals plans for flying taxi to bypass road traffic congestion.

Uber is working on a way to beat rush-hour traffic – by flying over it. The ride-sharing company just unveiled its plans for a ‘flying taxi’ – an electric plan that can transport a pilot and up to three passengers by air, at speeds of up to 180 miles per hour.

A model of the aircraft, which resembles a cross between a small plane and a helicopter, was unveiled at the CES show in Las Vegas and is being developed by Hyundai. Uber hopes to have air travel available by 2023.


Do you think ‘flying taxis’ could work? Would you feel safe in one?
