The design could also attract people's attention. The six-engine design was created with the help of BMW Designworks and is based on an all-round canopy that offers passengers unrestricted visibility. And yes, security is a concern. There are several redundant systems (including fuel cells) and a parachute airframe. First versions are piloted, but autonomy is announced.
The project is very optimistic. There are plans for test flights, but practical service has to wait for governments to offer regulatory approval. The hydrogen infrastructure is also an issue. CEO Steve Hanvey told the AP that it could take a decade or more for you to drive around the city in a flying cab. However, you may see alternative uses, such as: B. Air transport car and freight transport. It would allow more (and longer) flights than previously possible only with electric propulsion. Not only could that help cities cope with increased demand, but it could also reduce the cost of economising economies of scale.
