You can now book a flight on an air taxi.
Volocopter is a fully electric urban mobility solution marketed for the sole purpose of easy transportation. The start-up company is based in Germany and specializes in electric multirotor helicopters.
According to RobbReport, the company has begun taking orders for seats on their aircraft. The ticket price includes a 15-minute flight, with a video of the trip and a personalized certificate. Dates have not been set.
However, they are still waiting for certification from authorities.
The company has completed successful test flights in Germany, Finland, and Singapore, according to a press release. They expect to launch the program within 2-3 years, assuming certification goes according to plan.
Volocopter has two commercial helicopter types, as of now. VoloCity is the one in which purchased flights will be taken on. The Volocopter 2X (pictured above) seems to be used as a personal transportation system.
As of two hours ago (at the time of writing), 641 seats for the program are still available. They cost $355, or 300 euros.
