Air Taxi Service in New Zealand Took First Flight
Authorities in New Zealand on Tuesday have approved the first test flight of Air Taxi, carried out by Zephyr Airworks. Air Taxi Cora is an electric aircraft which features nearly dozen of fans to lift it off the surface. This makes Cora take-off from the surface vertically just like a helicopter. However, the developers of this vehicle claim that it is quieter than the helicopter making it able to transport people in the urban areas and car parking lots.
The reason behind developing such?technology?was to introduce a vehicle that is pollution free and runs without human input. Zephyr says that travelling in Cora will provide a simple cab like experience to the passengers. Passengers don?t need to have any experience of driving a plane. Cora will take care of everything from take-off to landing.
