EmbraerX Speeds Development Of Its EVTOL ‘Flying Cars’ For Uber Elevate And Beyond

The dream of flying cars that can zoom over urban traffic is a persistent one. Perhaps the most organized “urban air mobility” effort is the Uber Elevate Network, the “future of aerial ride-sharing.” Uber is working with partners like vehicle designers, manufacturers, infrastructure providers and regulators to begin testing vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles “as early as 2020.” Riders are to get the “option of an affordable shared flight” by 2023.
