Self Flying Taxi Service In Dubai

Catch a ride in this unpiloted "Flying Taxi". That's right, there's no crew just two seats for you and a friend. The Autonomous Air Taxi (AAT) is the world's first "Self Flying taxi Service". Dubai is currently testing the two seater drones for commercial use.

The AAT is electric and currently has a maximum flight time of 30 minutes. It cruises at 31 MPH and has a max speed of 62 MPH. German manufacturer Volocopter has supplied Dubai with the AAT. 9 independent battery systems power the aircraft. And just in case of emergency, the AAT is equipped with 2 parachutes.

The UAE claims you can hail a ride in the AAT via a smartphone app which will be commercially ready in 5 years. Dubai hopes that one fourth of all transport will be autonomous by 2030. And by 2050 the robots will have taken over. But are you ready to take a "Flying Cab" to the club?
