Uber’s plan to launch an air taxi service in 2023 just got a boost from a secretive startup

Uber is working on a plan to launch an urban air taxi service and has just joined with California-based aerospace company Joby Aviation.

Key findings

“Joby is the first company to commit to Uber’s aggressive timetable to launch its flying taxi service by 2023.”

“Joby will supply and operate the electric air taxis, and Uber will provide air traffic control help, landing pad construction, connections to ground transportation, and its ride-share network”

Uber envisions these flying taxis as being electric-powered, quiet, and having vertical take-off and landing capabilities.
