The Flying Car from Airbus Makes its First Flight

For 53 seconds an autonomous air taxi rose up and hovered at roughly 16 feet above ground. It was a milestone moment in the race to develop and release an un-piloted flying car. The video was filmed in late January and documents Airbus’ Vahana vehicle flying without human input. The footage then switches to video renderings of other potential systems of travel—all imaginative but certainly less real than the Vahana, which could become part of a taxi service fleet in the near future.
