It has been seen in films on the big screen for years, but now Airbus is looking to make it reality, and their looking to start tests this year!
“One hundred years ago, urban transport went underground,” Chief exec of Airbus, Tom Enders said at a tech conference in Germany.
“Now we have the technological wherewithal to go above ground.”
To make it so, three teams across the Airbus Group have taken on the project of delivering a different kind of air travel to what we’re used to with jetliners.
A number of ideas are being flown about (no pun intended), the main being an Uber style bus you book, 1-2 seater vehicles – again Uber style booking and autonomous air based delivery services – which would be available to the likes of DHL and Amazon.
