With each passing day, we have proof that we are living in the future imagined by the cinema, with technologies that do not stop reinventing themselves.
The novelty is that the prototype of the first “flying car” will be further tested this year, or at least is what he believes the CEO of Airbus, Tom Enders.
The autopilot flying car has the purpose of improving traffic, and the idea is that people book the vehicle through an application, as we do with Uber. So, anyone can book a flying car from the car sharing.Airbus is planning to test its prototype by the end of this year. In August 2016, the company is one of the leading manufacturers of helicopters, created a division called “Urban Air Mobility,” which explores concepts of a chopper to carry several people.
Airbus CEO Tom Enders recalled at a conference in Munich that over 100 years ago underground urban transport was developed. Now, with all the technology, it is possible to create means to fly over the ground.
He also pointed out that development is being taken very seriously and that using the airways will reduce the cost of infrastructure in cities, as it is not necessary to invest in roads and bridges. In addition to reducing the negative impact on the environment.
When will we see the first flying car?
Of course, the value of using the flying car has not yet been confirmed, and the conventional car would still be used, but Airbus plans to launch a prototype in late 2017. The vehicle will be self-propelled and will only fit one person. By 2021 the first commercial fleet is expected.
