    I saw something similar is in the works in Dubai. Might have been the same that you read, but I remember seeing a video of it.

    I used to fly remote control airplanes. Except for the VTOL(which I presume takes MORE energy than a rolling takeoff), this didn't seem much different. Flight times are under 10 minutes.

    Without HUGE advances in battery capacity/weight ratios, this isn't even a hobby flight let alone a daily commute.

    I can't wait for the "don't text and fly" ads to start.

    I think I will be retired from Spacely Sprockets before flying to work happens outside of Groom Lake.

    Cool, an autonomous EV-Uber for the sky. It takes a lot of time to get an aircraft certified. I live on a lake in Maine, and a Finnish float plane mfr just announced it was moving nearby to assemble their planes in the US. Atolavion. Looks perfect for me.
