Hop On And Fly Away … In A Taxi

Commuters in Dubai will soon be able to hop aboard flying taxis à la “The Jetsons” and take off, literally, at the push of a button. The cockpit has no pilot and no controls.

The passenger drone, capable of carrying a single rider and a piece of small luggage, can fly for 30 minutes or up to 30 miles on a single battery charge. It has a top speed of 100 m.p.h., but it’d, typically, operate at 60 m.p.h.
