The United Arab Emirate (UAE) have once again proven how dedicated they are to be set-pacer, not just economically but on other terms such as technology, as The world’s first self-flying taxi was launched at the Jumeirah Beach Park in Dubai, United Arab Emirates today.

These self-flying taxis named The Autonomous Air Taxi (AAT) had entirely redefined transportation system of Dubai which was the brainchild of Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA). According to Dubai Media Office, the two-seater AAT, capable of transporting passengers without human intervention, driver or a pilot, has been supplied by Volocopter, a Germany-based specialist manufacturer of automated air vehicles. The AAT, expected to be put into use in the fourth quarter, is powered by electricity and is very safe to use. Its design comprises 18 rotors to ensure secure cruising and landing in case of any rotor failure, said RTA. “It is environment-friendly as it is powered by clean electricity, and it has very little noise.
It has a maximum flight time of approximately 30 minutes at a speed of 50 km per hour, and a maximum air speed of 100 km per hour,” according to RTA. “After the remarkable success of the first driverless metro in the region, we are glad to witness today the test flight of the Autonomous Air Taxi,” said Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum. “This is another proof of our commitment to positive change. We are constantly exploring opportunities to serve the community and advance the prosperity and happiness of society,” he added.
