Airbus plans to showcase to public a first functional prototype of advanced aircraft or self-flying taxi to the end of next year.
Project of French company named Vahan, is a advanced aircraft equipped with a fully functional autopilot system. Exceptional maneuverability provides eight rotors, and in addition to the possibilities of vertical take off and landing Vahan be completely independent to operate in air transport.
With the ability to drive one passenger many have already declared Airbus aircraft as taxi of the future, and the American CNN goes beyond describing it air Uber. This, we could except to see Vahan in the role of a taxi transportation until 2020.
Unlike some other projects of flying cars, Airbus for now not talking about the possibilities of Vahan in road transport. Judging by the trends this is not necessary, since the adaptation to the needs of today’s transport is sufficient for Vahan.
