The Future of Urban Transport

Flying cars were part of the concept of the future from the very appearance of aircraft. The science fiction authors dreamed of adding a third dimension to road transport, but the reality was invariably cruel – gravity, aerodynamics and the invisible hand of the market invariably stood in the way of designers of everyday flying cars. Add to this the complexity of management, preventing the mass of such vehicles. However, the dream lives on – large companies and startups present their projects every year, and the development of autopilot technologies can finally bring developments to the mass market.
