Via: Radio New Zealand:
A network of self-piloted, flying taxis will be trialled in New Zealand, in a partnership with the government.
Airways, New Zealand’s air navigation service provider confirmed the trial and said it will develop a nationwide unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) traffic management system which will integrate the flying taxis.
The New York Times reported that a company funded by Google’s co-founder Larry Page, Zephyr Airworks, has been testing the drone-like electric aircraft called Cora in the South Island, and that the company will today make a joint announcement with the Prime Minister about the next phase.
The aim now is to gain aviation certification for the flying taxis.
