Currently, the mobility sector is highly dominated by e-scooters and electric vehicles as these help in reducing harmful emissions. With continuous advancements in this sector, electric air taxis services are said to come into picture to save time by avoiding traffic. Volocopter, a German air taxi startup is one of the companies that is working to make short-distance air travel a reality in the coming years.
Volocopter carries the credits of being the first vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) company to get the ‘Design Organisation Approval’ from the European Aviation Safety Authority. The company is already actively pursuing commercial certifications. The first commercial routes for air taxis are expected to be opened in the coming years.
