NASA begins testing a flying taxi

NASA has begun testing a flying-taxi. Soon the device could become a new type of urban and intercity transport. The machine has a function of vertical take-off and landing.

During the tests, the aerotaxi reached a speed of 322 km/h. Electric vehicle made about 1 thousand test flights. To implement the project, NASA needs to get approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. The agency plans to issue a permit to use the flying cab by 2023.
