    Urban Air Mobility

    The future of city air transportation



    Urban air mobility is an aviation industry term for on-demand and automated passenger and cargo-carrying air transportation services typically flown without a pilot. Urban air mobility services will bring innovative new ways for people to travel around cities and rural areas while reducing congestion and taking care of the enviroment. Here we list some of the aircraft that could be your next taxi in the near future.
