The race to take off the first electric flying taxi

The possibility of moving to and from work in a fraction of the time it usually takes us is quite irresistible.

No traffic jams, no train delays and no cold on the platforms: how can we not like that idea?

This is what more than a hundred companies that develop electric take-off and vertical landing airplanes (eVTOL for its acronym in English) promise.

Like helicopters, they don’t need an airstrip. But unlike these, they promise to be quiet and cheap.

However, it is a dream that seems to be far away. Industry experts say taxi services with airplanes like these will not be a massive phenomenon until the 2030s.
