Japan's first test of flying car with pilot

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

With the pandemic crushing the pace of innovation, most flying car projects backed by American tech giants have remained grounded. But a Japanese startup is quietly taking a manned prototype to the sky and aims to make travel by flying taxi a reality by 2023.

Tokyo-based SkyDrive, showed off a test flight of its SD-03 flying car model earlier this month in the Japanese city of Toyota; a video was released on Friday. The single-seat car, powered by a battery and four pairs of propellers, was lifted to six feet above the ground and hovered in a netted test area for about five minutes. Most significantly, the car had a pilot on board.

It was SkyDrive’s first manned flight with the SD-03 model.
