The Volar air taxi prototype was built on a scale of 1 to 2 and has 2 passenger seats. He was tested in Dubai.

Remotely piloted, the aircar rose to a height of 4 meters and flew at a speed of approximately 40 kilometers per hour.

This is a significant milestone for the British startup, as up to this point all testing has been done indoors.

  The flying car will fly at an altitude of about 900 meters.

  Its speed is 220 kilometers per hour.

  The dimensions of an air taxi will be noticeably larger than the dimensions of a conventional car. For example, its width is 3.2 m.

  Number of seats – 4.

  The maximum load capacity is 600 kg.
