Bell Helicopter Air Taxi – New Concept

Someday drones will be ready to whisk us around the sky. Helicopters have been doing it for years, though, so it only makes sense to start autonomous air transport there. The Bell Helicopter Air Taxi is a glimpse into this not-so-far-off future, with seating for four in a connected, streamlined cabin designed to accommodate both work and relaxation. According to the company, the first Air Taxi flights will launch with a pilot in a 1+3 configuration, with full autonomous operation coming thereafter. The cabin is currently on display at CES as part of an augmented reality experience that lets you go through one of several scenarios in which an Air Taxi might be far preferable to traditional ground transportation. And don’t forget to check another great helicopter.
