Airbus-Audi CityAirbus electric air taxi
Permalink  
 


On March 12th of last year, Airbus revealed their technology demonstrator of the CityAirbus at Ingolstadt, an electric eight-rotor VTOL aircraft designed under the European Urban Air Mobility initiative. This is after a model of the concept was shown at the Paris Air Show in June 2017. The first unmanned tethered flight occurred on May 3rd, 2019, and the first tethered flight was in December. A manned flight was planned for late in 2019 but it hasn't happened yet (I'm guessing because of the reported issues about the Airbus-Audi partnership and the Audi Pop.Up Next design).
