Running late? Just take a self-flying taxi

, 27 days ago

The Autonomous Air Taxi (AAT),  a vehicle that will be used for the world’s first self-flying taxi service, will soon be operational in Dubai, UAE.

The AAT, powered by clean electricity and featuring low noise levels, was tested on September 25. The two-seater AAT is capable of transporting people without human intervention or a pilot. Its current prototype version has a maximum flight time of approximately 30 minutes at a cruise speed of 50 km/h, and a maximum airspeed of 100 km/h. The AAT measures about two meters in height, and the diameter of the rotor rim, including propellers, is just over seven meters.
