Uber flying taxis could land in Dallas as soon as the year 2020.
The ridesharing company talked about its latest efforts at an industry conference yesterday. Uber's Aviation Director and former NASA employee is working to make the high tech transportation system happen in just a few years. Customers would be able to take a flying-car that lifts like a helicopter and then extracts wings like from an airplane.
The company also plans to build Vertiports on existing parking garages so it doesn't have to build as much. The ride sharing company is already working to place sensors around the metro area to monitor noise levels as to not disturb neighbors. Dallas and Dubai were the first announced cities to get the program. Source: KDFW
