Description
Using Bell's Nexus concept design, Uber is interested in starting UberAir, a flying taxi service in the foreseeable future. Passengers can request a pickup from the rooftops of tall buildings, and fly to their destination, without being stalled by traffic on the roads. The planes are expected to be able to travel about 60 miles per charge and be able to fully recharge within five minutes.
