airlifted by a drone in large traffic, Automotive News first documented.

Demonstrate that kicks of March 9, in accordance to the Automotive News
report. Airbus and Italdesign declined to remark on the report
to Company Insider.

Airbus is at the moment pursuing “traveling automobiles” — additional properly
outlined as Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircrafts that,
like the identify suggests, do not require a runway to work mainly because
they can get off vertically.

Airbus is also creating a traveling taxi named CityAirbus.
