Ride-hailing service Uber has announced plans for a flying taxi that could provide relief from road congestion for the commuters of the future.
On stage in Lisbon, Uber's Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden showed off the first teaser video for one of Uber's flying vehicle concept designs.
And, unlike Uber'spricey helicopter service, the rides will be relatively affordable compared with other air travel options (Uber expects fares to be comparable to those of its on-the-ground ride-hailing options).
According to Uber's CPO Jeff Holden, the flying taxis will attain speeds in excess of 320km/h and carry up to four people, cutting journey times across major cities. "I think 2020 is realistic for a vehicle that is not replacing an airplane but replacing a auto", Richard Pat Anderson, director of the Flight Research Center at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, told Wired at the time.
Uber plans to develop the software to manage the flying taxi network with the vehicles to be built primarily by Pipistrel Aircraft.
Earlier this year, the firm hired two NASA veterans to run its aircraft vehicle design team and its air traffic management software program. Engadget reports that the new service could take an hour and a half LA drive down to under 30 minutes.
The idea of flying cars isn't new, of course, but has been very slow to catch on - much slower than past generations had imagined.
