Taxi with vertical take-off

Soon we will stop paying attention to traffic jams: in the spring, engineers from the Bavarian company Lilium tested a prototype of a two-seater electric plane-taxi Lilium Jet

And a few days ago, the startup announced the successful attraction of $ 90 million investment to create a new five-seat aircraft. With vertical take-off and landing, which will make it as convenient as possible in the city. The size of the air taxi will not be more than a standard helicopter, there will be almost no noise, and its speed will be about 186 miles, with a flight range of about 186 miles per “charge”. Yes, Lilium Jet will use only renewable electrical energy. The first manned flights are scheduled for 2019, but for now, see how the work goes.
