Taking to the Sky: Air Taxis, Flying Cars, VTOLs, and Other Short-Range Personal Aircraft

July 01, 2017 | State of the Market Report

The flying car, a staple of science fiction and futurism for 100 years, seems finally (and suddenly) upon us. Airbus and Uber are among the large, global companies lending much-needed credibility to the idea that they will be in the air ever, much less by 2020 as many plan. Yet startups and even individual makers could beat established aircraft manufacturers to the flying car market, with dozens of developers emerging all around the globe. This report looks at leading developers of flying cars, gyrocopters, polycopters, tiltrotors, and other configurations, analyzing their proposed vehicles, key metrics, and patents.
