Both Lillium & Volocopter had Done Test runs
Two Seperate Technology Improvements prove us that you can soon fly to office.Yes ,We are talking about Lillium & Volocopter which made test runs on Flying taxis.
Lillium had finished their first phase of testing on its air taxi in may, but it only took off and hovered for a few seconds before landing. This time, Lilium’s five-passenger, 36-jet electric prototype not only completed another vertical takeoff and landing but also transitioned to forward flight achieving an airspeed of 100 kilometers per hour.
Lillium had released a Video footage in which the company is seen flying around the fields.
Volocopter , another major aviation firm did test run in Singapore , The air taxi’s maiden flight above Singapore’s Marina Bay lasted about two minutes – a minute short of the advertised three-minute test run – perhaps because the thunder had begun to rumble. It was manned by a pilot, although future flights are expected to be fully autonomous. Marina Bay lasted about two minutes – a minute short of the advertised three-minute test run – perhaps because the thunder had begun to rumble. It was manned by a pilot, although future flights are expected to be fully autonomous according to Al – Jazeera. Volocopter said it hopes to travel at a speed up to 110km per hour.
Here’s a peek of Volocopter’s test run.
Behold the #Volocopter2X flying over #MarinaBay! Its the first time ever, an #eVTOL #airtaxi flew piloted through a city center.
