Lilium a German flying car company have just launched a successful concept flight of its vertical take-off and landing vehicles, with the goal of eventually enabling people to  get a high-speed flight around cities.

 

Lilium, a company that develops vertical take-off and landing vehicles (VTOL), has already built a full-scale prototype flying car, which flew for the first time in April this year. Now the Europe-based company is working on building some business for these futuristic jets.

 

SEE a video of the maiden flight:

The company is about to make the ‘flying cars’ eventually become a reality.

 

Remo Gerber, hired to be Lilium’s chief commercial officer is instrumental to the success of Lilium’s long-term plan to become the flying version of Uber by creating an on-demand network of VTOL jets. The jets would take off and land from pads throughout cities.

The ride-hail company is shooting to demonstrate its network of flying cars in Dubai and Texas by 2020.

Which other company has ambitions of flying vehicles?

Lilium is not the only company with ambitions for a flying car service. One way or another, they are up in competition against the likes of Airbus A3, EHang, Terrafragia, Kitty Hawk, Volocopter, etc . . .
