Are Air Taxis Ready For Prime Time?

February 23, 2021

Air taxis that can take off and land like helicopters while flying like airplanes with forward thrust could finally realize our vision of the future full of flying cars. Short-haul air transport is currently the domain of pricey helicopters, but electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft would be radically cheaper and more efficient. Over 150 startups as well as a growing number of corporations around the globe are working eagerly on innovative solutions to make eVTOL vehicles — or air taxis — become a reality, in the hopes of providing answers for pressing topics such as urbanization and sustainable travel.

Major topics covered in this report:

  • Startups with an impressive technology base
  • Growth shown by patent filings
  • Current technology leaders and promising startups in the field
