Before you’ll be able to fly from London to New York in less than half an hour thanks to Elon Musk’s space rocket plans, you’ll be able to get another taste of air transportation. Uber and NASA announced its plans for the future and ‘the reality of urban air transportation is closer than you think’.
The idea is that by 2020 you’ll be able to take a helicopter from rooftop to rooftop in Dallas, Los Angeles and Dubai. Eventually, the plans are to roll out UberAir in more crowded cities with traffic problems. Just like with Uber’s driving taxis, you’ll be able to reserve a flight on the app and it won’t cost a lot more than a regular Uber taxi but will be a lot quicker.
