Imagine being able to fly over rush hour traffic for the same cost as hiring a taxi!
Have you ever sat in your car during rush hour and thought, “I wish I could just fly over this traffic and get to my destination faster!”? If so, you’re not alone. This exact thought is what inspired the concept of “Project Vahana”, a fleet of on-demand autonomous drones built to carry passengers through the skies.
Autoblog relays that the aeronautics company Airbus recently announced its Vahana vision, and is optimistic about testing the flying taxis as early as 2017.
