Imagine a world where flying cars zip through the skies, efficiently transporting passengers and cargo above bustling city streets. This once-futuristic vision is rapidly becoming a reality, with electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles poised to reshape the urban landscape. As the technology advances and regulatory frameworks solidify, the question on everyone’s mind is: How fast can the world adopt flying cars and eVTOLs, and when will they become commonplace ?
As urban landscapes become more congested and the demand for efficient transportation continues to grow, electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft are emerging as a promising solution for urban air mobility. These electrically powered, innovative flying machines hold the potential to revolutionize the way we travel within cities and between regions. But before they can take to the skies and ferry passengers seamlessly, they must first navigate a complex web of regulations and certifications.
Unmanned aerial vehicles vary considerably in some regions and countries of the world regulatory environment setting the framework for the practical use of Unfortunately, the necessary consensus has not yet been reached within the European Union, which would even allow the development of uniform guidelines for the use of drones alone and promulgation.
Paris transport companies have brought together the world’s leading Urban Air Mobility (UAM) companies in a common test area on the outskirts of Paris.
The development of electric aircraft is moving at an ever-increasing rate worldwide: another company is embarking on the development of such a powered small passenger car, and EASA has certified the first ultralight type in Europe.
