The NeXt Personal Air Taxi promises Autonomous flight bookable from a phone app!
This is a tech blog and not a flight blog. However, sometimes the two will meet. Flight like ground vehicles increasingly are becoming autonomous. However, the hurdle seems to be taking to the skis for personal transport that does not require an airport or acres of land and a pilots licence. Modern aircraft today have screens and fly by wire already and of course autopilots routing, mapping, they can even land themselves! If you want a great channel on YouTube for Aviation with a 747 pilot who explains everything in a fun way check out Kelsey on 74 Gear here. The fact that the skies are almost empty compared to the roads makes the idea of Air Taxis or Air Ubers very attractive. The advancement (compared to the early days) in quadcopter technology and their ability to stay still film and move to designated points flawlessly can of course just be upscaled. Courier companies are already trialing it (Amazons infamous air delivery service for example) so this is where the Bolaero comes in. Bol Aero get it…. nice!
