The Airbus “Flying Car” Is Almost Ready for Its First Flight– But Is It Safe?
Airbus is a European aerospace company that’s pushing our transportation options into the future. Their Vahana project is a “flying car,” or electric, autonomous aircraft. You place your coordinates, order the taxi, and it flies to pick you up on the nearest rooftop and take you to your destination. The single passenger air taxi will help relieve the congestion of traffic on the ground. A³, the Silicon Valley subsidiary, launched this project in 2016, and they planned to test the air taxi at the end of 2017.
