According to the aviation company, a prototype will be ready at the end of this year.
This announcement was made by Tom Enders who is the CEO of Airbus.
“One hundred years ago, urban transport went underground, now we have the technological wherewithal to go above ground,” Enders said. He said flying cars would help reduce traffic and wouldn’t command expensive supporting infrastructure because “with flying, you don’t need to pour billions into concrete and roads.”
They expect the flying cars to be autonomous with an app hailing option like Uber.
