A model of an “air taxi” is on display in Osaka, Japan
In Osaka, Japan, a cutting-edge model of an “air taxi” is currently on display, showcasing the future of transportation. The prototype, developed by a consortium of Japanese companies, is a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle designed for urban air mobility.
The sleek, futuristic air taxi is equipped with four propellers and can carry up to four passengers at a time. It boasts a range of up to 50 kilometres and can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour. With its electric power source, it’s also a more environmentally friendly option for short-distance travel.
The consortium hopes that the air taxi will soon become a common sight in the skies above cities, offering a convenient and efficient alternative to traditional ground-based transportation. While there are still regulatory and safety concerns to be addressed, the air taxi represents a promising vision for the future of transportation.
