Still Waters Posted September 25, 2017 #1 Share Posted September 25, 2017 (IP: Staff) · Dubai has edged closer to its goal of launching a pioneering hover-taxi service, with the authorities announcing a successful "concept" flight was made on Monday without passengers. Safety features for the two-seater air taxi include emergency parachutes and nine independent battery systems, according to Dubai's Road and Transport Authority (RTA). It said the prototype, supplied by Germany-based Volocopter, can fly for 30 minutes at a maximum speed of 100 kilometres per hour (62mph). https://phys.org/news/2017-09-driverless-hover-taxi-concept-flight-dubai.html 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
