Start saving now! Flying cars will be here by 2025

Have you been dreaming about driving (or I guess piloting) a flying car since you were a kid? One German startup is working hard to make this dream a reality – and is aiming to mass produce their “autonomous passenger air vehicles” by 2025. Although test flights are just taking off now, significant progress to make this new form of transportation a reality are taking shape.

“Unlike traditional drones and UAVs, which rely on between one and four motors to stay airborne, Lilium’s craft boasts a staggering 36 separate motors integrated across its four wings. It has no tail, no rudder, no oil circuits, no gearboxes, and no variable-pitch fan blades.”

No word yet on how many passengers these vehicles can hold, the cost or if you need a special license to operate one, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

WILL YOU NEED A PILOT LICENSE?
