Flying Taxis Will Soon Be Reality: Here Is All You Need To Know About Your Future Transport I

Shared mobility will be the future of transport and it'll all be in the air. Literally. The automobile sector will have to bring the ‘next big-thing’ in shared rides and a “flying taxi” is a reality closer than you think. Now some must be quite sceptical of the prediction. Primarily because the concept [...]
