CES: Driverless air taxis will come before self-driving cars, says Uber Air partner Bell

The aerospace company is one of six vehicle partners working with Uber to launch electric air taxis, which are due to begin demonstration flights this year and be operational in 2023.

“It’s the safest, best path to start with a pilot on board the air taxi vehicles, and I agree with that. But in order to unlock the true economical potential of the system, we need to get to that more autonomous state. And I think we can.
