A German-company proposed a flying taxi called Lilium that can glide over 300 km per hour. The CEO of Lilium, Daniel Wiegand stated, “Today we are taking another huge step towards making urban air mobility a reality. We dream of a world where anyone can fly wherever they want, whenever they want.”

The company plans to offer a flight booking through the Uber app with similar transport costs with UberX’s through their smartphone. The flying taxi lands to a landing pad called Skyport.

The first two cities that had Lilium’s flight trials are Dallas and Los Angeles. For its third trial, the company selected Melbourne Australia because of its apt demographics, culture, and technology.

Uber (UBER), Boeing (BA), and Rolls Royce (RYCEF) are the big names in the industry working on flying vehicles. Also, Uber is cooperating with NASA regarding air traffic flow before its first major commercial service in 2025.
