This UK company will bring flying taxis!

Has your life also come to a standstill due to daily traffic jams? Imagine if your taxi took off from the ground and lands on the roof of your office building? Then recharge from there and get ready for a new ride? Stephen Fitzpatrick, founder and CEO of Britain’s Vertical Aerospace, is close to making this dream a reality. For this, Vertical Aerospace has set a target of raising $394 million (about Rs 2970 crore) with a New York listed company. He says that his aircraft will be ready to fly by the mid-2020s.

He is not the only person in the world to accept this as a reality. Some of the world’s most high-profile engineers and airlines also agree that Vertical is ready with its plan for a zero-emission mini-aircraft that can carry four passengers for 120 miles (193 km) with virtually no noise. Can take it to the sky.

American Airlines, the aircraft Lesser Avolon, engineers Honeywell and Rolls-Royce, as well as Microsoft’s M12 unit, are also investing in the merger, which is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

Fitzpatrick, who also founded Britain’s No. 3 energy retailer OVO Energy, said Vertical flights between London’s Heathrow Airport and its Canary Wharf financial district will take 15 minutes and cost GBP 50 (about Rs 5,130) per passenger .

“We are going to sign the deal. The need and demand from the airlines is huge.” Fitzpatrick told Reuters. The biggest challenge for Vertical is getting its aircraft certified. Regarding this, Fitzpatrick said that it is funded by money coming from the merger, it will be by the end of 2024.

Fitzpatrick first came to mind in 2015 when he sat for hours in 10 lanes of gridlocked traffic in Sao Paulo, Brazil. After that he thought of a way to get rid of this problem and got involved for it. The problem of traffic jam is found in almost every part of the world. This is a big problem especially in densely populated countries. This mission of Vertical is definitely going to revolutionize the traffic system in future. <!–
