Volocopter, Urban air taxis
The Volocopter is the world’s first fully-electric, flying vehicle for urban mobility, built by the eponymous German manufacturer, and has completed test flights in Dubai. The air taxi system, which can carry two people at a time, has no combustion engine, produces no noise, has no complex mechanics and turns the vision of ‘flight-for-all’ into reality. Using its own hubs it connects vital intersections like airports or business parks with city centres. Volocopters relieve the strain on congestion-prone areas like bridges and ring roads and are cheaper than other aerial mobility alternatives.
