Fasten your seatbelts because flying cars are gonna be out and about.  Flying cars have been an idea far from reality, but in Dubai the word “impossible”  is far from their reality. Prepare for the month of July because Dubai will be offering self flying taxis.  It may not be a car, however the taxis are drones that propel themselves and a single passenger up to 31 miles at a speed of over 99 miles per hour.  The announcement came during a government summit in Dubai. It was in part devoted to the future of traffic.

The city’s transportation authority writes that the city plans to make a full 25 percent of its travel autonomous by the year 2030.  Called the EHANG 184, they are produced in China.  EHANG comes with many features that have been modified and ready to go. The automated vehicles are prevented from taking off during severe weather. They can fly for up to 25 minutes with a payload as heavy as 220 pounds.  It can now fly for five more minutes and hold 40 more pounds. They include air conditioners and a futuristic-looking seat. That’s not to mention the potential for spectacular views of the United Arab Emirates’ most populous city.

 

The taxis have been tested in Dubai and the city is all about the travel of the future with a driverless metro and plans to study a potential future hyperloop system.  The future is now in Dubai get ready to fly.
