Enter! This flying taxi is on its way.

Taxis will become much more convenient in the future, especially now that there is a flying taxi on the market. Check out the photographs in this section right away.

After a night on the town, take a taxi back to your hotel. Alternatively, if you are travelling to the airport for a vacation, everyone uses a taxi from time to time. However, the evolution of the cab as a mode of transportation has not been particularly noteworthy in recent years. The reason for this is that there is a flying version of it.

Several businesses are now engaged in the development of such a gadget. Airbus is one of these companies. Of course, we’re familiar with them because they fly in aeroplanes. Recently, the business released new photographs of their electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicle (eVTOL), which is still in development. You are aware that the name still requires improvement. Airbus believes that flying vehicles, and hence taxis, have a bright future ahead of them. The CityAirbus NextGen appears to be a very amazing aircraft.

A video introducing the CityAirbus NextGen was uploaded to YouTube and has already gone viral. In terms of short distances and urban travel, it is extremely developed. Fixed wings that cannot be moved are part of the plane’s design since that is exactly what it is. The tail is in the shape of the letter V, and it is equipped with eight electric air screw motors.

CityAirbus NextGen is a product of Airbus.

The flying taxi is extremely silent, even by today’s standards, and it emits no harmful emissions at all. Flights up to 120 kilometres per hour are possible with a maximum of four persons on board the device. Reach? That is a little disappointing, as the distance is only 80 kilometres. When it touches down, the Airbus is still deafeningly quiet. During flight, the noise level remains below 65 dB(A), however at landing, it rises to 70 dB(A) (A). If you’re wondering what dB(A) is, it’s a sound level measurement that is derived from decibels but adjusts the sound levels to account for the sensitivity of the (human) ear.

The design of the flying taxi is still in the early stages. The first prototype is expected to take to the air in 2023.
