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.
The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has recently expanded the list of aircraft and helicopters that qualify as air carriers, allowing operators to use them for commercial purposes.
The Samson Sky Switchblade, for which pre-registrations are already being accepted on the manufacturer’s website, will receive the necessary permits for flight tests.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has allowed the drone of American Robotics to fly over certain areas of the states of Kansas, Massachusetts, and Nevada without human intervention.
