The company Volocopter, which produces silent electric airplanes, which take off and land vertically, plans to launch test air taxis in Singapore in the second half of 2019.
This is reported on the official website of Volocopter.
During flight tests, they seek to confirm the ability to move vehicles in an urban environment. In addition, the company plans to set up a design and development firm in Singapore to support these taxis.
The company has already gained the support of local authorities. Tests approved by the Ministry of Transport of the country, the Office of Civil Aviation of Singapore and the Economic Development Board.
“It is possible for air taxis to change mobility and logistics in urban places. Volocopter is at the forefront of such innovative technologies in the aviation industry. CAAS is pleased to work with Volocopter to explore technical capabilities and develop appropriate operational guidelines to facilitate testing in Singapore, ”said the head of CAAS.
Also, we previously reported that the taxi service Uber signed a contract with NASA, in which the space agency will develop software to manage flying taxis.
