PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A tech start-up across the pond claims air taxis could be picking up passengers in Britain within four years.
Vertical Aerospace built this electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft.
It is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom.
It is equipped with four propellers and is capable of five-minute flight and can reach a top speed of 50 miles per hour.
The start-up said it plans to launch an inter-city air taxi service by 2022.
