Will We Have Flying Taxi Soon?

Flying taxi, credit to Mashable.

Many countries not only thinking, but also developed prototypes of flying taxi. UK, Japan, Germany and USA among countries that competing to make flying taxi to be reality in near future.

Two clear advantages are reducing crowd in highways and bring down cost if we use for small airplanes, especially for distance of less than 200 miles.

Indirectly effects, the areas that far from airports such as tourism destinations, shopping centers at remote areas and recreation centers might have economic booms due to easily accessed by flying taxis.

Uber has planned to operate a flying taxi in 2023, about 4 years from now. The charge not so expensive compared to regular taxi, 30% higher. Let say if we paid normal taxi with US$30, then the US$ 39 for flying taxi.

The flying taxi maximum speed is 200 mile per-hour. The flying taxi pick up passengers on roof top of buildings such as shopping centers and car park buildings, and delivers the passenger at the same kind of buildings or other safe spaces.

Taxis bring four passengers and fly above 500 meters of ground. It is need special pilots, but easier than to fly helicopters or smaller airplanes.

Do you think that it is reasonable to have “flying taxi in the crowd cities?” or in your states or in your countries?

  2. It seems convenient and maybe a good point if it could spur the remote areas. But I wonder if it is not too fuel-consuming and if it can really be developed on a large scale with a lot of traffic in the air.

  8. I'm a cautious person, so I'd want to read accident statistics before taking a flying taxi. But the idea is a good one.
