The current state of self-direction, or autonomous navigation, in eVTOLs is a fascinating convergence of aerospace engineering, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI). The promise of autonomous eVTOLs is not just a reduction in urban congestion but a fundamental change in how we perceive distance and personal mobility.

A Shift in Aviation Licensing and Training

  • Reading Time:3Minutes

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has proposed to develop pilot training requirements that will essentially create the legal environment for the certification and operation of eVTOLs in Community airspace. The rules are expected to open up the future of flying taxis in the United States, even if the technology is still years away from being commercialized.
