Flying taxi to be launched this summer

The sci-fi technology that we often see on television is finally here. No longer do we have to be congested in traffic moments away from executing a road rage action. The flying taxi is finally here! At least not until this summer.

That is what is planned in Dubai this summer. According to Forbes news, a flying taxi type is currently in the making from a drone making company in China. The flying taxi can carry one person of up to 220 pounds (100kg) and a small suitcase. It can travel up to 60 miles per hour and a distance of 19 miles (30km).

The flying taxi does not need the driver to learn how to fly / drive it. At the push of a button, the taxi will set forth and travel from point A to point B.

So let’s wait this summer and see this magnificent flying machine in motion.
