Why drive, if we can fly?

The “Urban Air Mobility” projects started in 2017 in Ingolstadt, Germany, thanks to AUDI and Airbus. Unmanned aerial vehicles were used primarily for emergency blood transport, monitoring and mapping areas.

In recent years, it has emerged to passenger drones, or EVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) aircrafts, which are capable of taking off and landing vertically by providing the most efficient solution in the field of transportation.

Saving time is one of the most important factors for these futuristic vehicles, as they can get from A to B 6-7x faster than ground transportation. Think about it, from JFK New York Airport to Manhattan instead of the 30-40 minute drive, you can get to downtown in 6 minutes or even from Liszt Ferenc International Airport in a few minutes. You can save a lot of time that can be used for more productivity.

In addition to being a time millionaire, it is worth mentioning that the electric air taxis are capable of a range of about 100-300 km/h on a single charge, which may be sufficient for the airport-city transfer route. What are the benefits of air taxis in addition to saving time? Everyone strives to create greener, more environmentally friendly solutions, and that’s exactly why they use batteries or even fuel cell solutions for drones, because they have much lower CO2 emissions. There are hybrid type of aircrafts where even a combination of petrol and battery can achieve a higher range that results in higher CO2 emissions.

Safety – It is also worth considering the fact of how many accidents happen on the roads and how much in the air. It is likely that self-driving taxis and air taxis will run in the future, which will improve these statistics, but the following statistics are worth reviewing:

United States – Car Accident Statistics: (Source):

  • There are more than 6 million car accidents per year (2018 data)
  • More than 3 million people are injured in accidents
  • 90 people die in car accidents every day
  • 9 people die in a car accident every day because something distracts them (such as making a phone call)

EU – car accident statistics (Source)

  • There are more than 1.1 million car accidents per year (2018 data)
  • 68 people die in car accidents every day

Airplane and helicopter accident statistics:

According to a commercial airplane analysis in 2018, 2.6% of 1 million flights have an accident, compared to 3% in 2014, which shows that passenger airplanes are also becoming safer.

Private jets:

It is important to emphasize that each type of private jet has a different type of danger factor. There are approximately 500 fatalities in private-vehicle accidents in the United States each year

Helicopters:

Helicopters have a 1% chance of a fatal accident out of 100,000 flight hours (Source)

In summary, on the roads 1 to 114 we have a chance of having an accident with a fatal car, while with a plane that also includes air taxis and private planes 1 to 9821 based on an analysis by fortune.com. (Source)

In summary, on the roads 1 to 114 we have a chance of having an accident with a fatal car, while with a plane that also includes air taxis and private planes 1 to 9821 based on an analysis by fortune.com. (Source) In the future, the largest reduction in the number of fatal accidents can be achieved with self-driving passenger drones. The use of self-driving could prevent up to 7 million accidents a year. Surely many are wondering what happens if all the engines break down during a flight? Safety is the most important consideration when licensing air taxis and aircraft, so in most cases it can take 3-5 years for such a passenger aircraft to hit the market. They have multiple batteries, multiple motors, multiple control units that ensure that they function as a separate unit in the event of any stop or fault and can operate uniquely. Hundreds of startups are currently working on automatic parachutes to help the plane land even in the worst situations.

Experience – Surely our readers have been following the same paths every day for decades. Noises, potholes on the roads, careless drivers, humming. Imagine being able to travel to work without obstacles, we have the opportunity to focus on what we just need. True, the acceleration from lamp to lamp can be forgotten in the case of air taxis, but to our knowledge, there are already startups who are also developing racing drones for this problem. (Source)
