Lilium company successfully tested an electric aircraft model, which is equipped jet engines on May 4. The flying Taxi can carry passengers in cities, helping to reduce traffic jam and shorten moving time.
The flying taxi has a space for a pilot and four passengers. According to Lilium, the vehicle is designing very simple and safe, That leads to the fee for moving cheaper than other aircraft. There are 36 electric jet engines to design for a flying taxi. Especially, it can take off vertically, even when it’s in the air. The air taxi only needs energy equivalent to electric cars to fly for the journey. Lilium’s flying taxis have the noise level just 20% of the helicopter and work as public transport.
Thus, this is a long step in dreaming to take aircraft moving in urban areas of the Germans.
Currently, Lilium company is waiting for the safety certification for the flying Taxi model.
